Although MDE and Hw/Sw Co-design are widely used to address the design complexity problem, the lack of design procedures and methodologies joining both concepts restrains their usage as complementary techniques, thus preventing the implementation of faster and more robust design cycles. In this paper we present a practical semi-automated design flow where both methodologies are merged and exploited to enable a fast design process targeting highly complex Real-Time Embedded Systems, executing several tasks on SoC and MPSoC devices, while allowing the usage of Design Space Exploration, Schedulability Analysis and Estimation techniques.
