The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a language for specifying, visualizing, constructing, and documenting the artifacts of software systems, as well as for business modeling and other non-software systems. The UML represents a collection of best engineering practices that have proven successful in the modeling of large and complex systems; it is interesting to envision its extension for specification and modeling of hardwaresoftware systems as well, since the first design phases, i.e. before hardware-software partitioning has been effected. This paper describes how UML has been used in the design of a wireless meter reading system consisting of hardware and software components.
