This document proposes a meta-model for architectures of embedded systems. The overall scope taken is deliberately broad, aiming at covering multiple perspectives of embeddedsystems based product development. As e. g. pointed out in [49], risk mitigation strategies in product development require a holistic approach encompassing all sub processes and their interfaces, hence requiring to cover the full range of what we call perspectives, from a geometric/ physical view of the product, to a view focusing on its technical architecture, to a view elaborating its logical architecture, grouping functionality according to (sub-) system organisation,to a purely functional perspective (getting the functional specifications right), and starting with an operational perspective, focusing on interface requirements e. g. based on operational scenarios. This separation of concerns by perspectives is complemented by offering abstraction levels, as a well known principle to cope with complexity in system design. Hence design artifacts can be placed in a two-dimensional design space, organized by perspective and level of abstraction.
