Application Mapping and Communication Synthesis for Object-Oriented Platform-Based Design

BIB
Kim Grüttner
Platform-based design of embedded systems on a chip consists of the parallel functional application specification, configuration of the hardware platform (i.e. connection of processing, memory and physical communication channels) and mapping of the application description on the processing, memory and communication resources of the hardware platform. The main contribution of this work is the seamless object-oriented modeling and automatic refinement of communication. In the application model, communication is specified by method calls on communication objects, independent from a physical communication channel. By means of mapping rules, these application model method calls are automatically transformed (synthesized) and implemented on the processing, memory and communication resources of the hardware platform. This approach enables the exploration and assessment of the impact of different platform configurations and mapping rules on functional and extra-functional properties.
