NameD1.4.2 Framework for platform based design-space exploration

This deliverable is a public overview of the work done in work package WP1 Requirements, specification and integration to holistic design environment (Start: M1 - End: M40), with a specific focus on the design space exploration aspects of the design flow.

This deliverable documents the COMPLEX design approach. It gives an overview of the holistic platform based design space exploration flow with industrial and academic case-studies to cover the entire flow.

The COMPLEX flow follows a platform based design approach where the functionality and architecture view of the system are separated.

The first goal of this deliverable is to provide an overview of the COMPLEX design flow and to describe main interfaces in the COMPLEX design flow which enable interoperability among all involved partners. As described in the DoW these requirements are focused on:

“Application” and stimuli description: Defines the functional view of the system including the definition of the initial, functional and non-functional specification methodology using MARTE. Matlab/Stateflow is also required as an additional system modelling input incorporating dynamic system behaviour.

Platform description: Defines the architectural view of the system. It includes the definition of the MARTE HW resource modelling methodology supporting the specification of the execution platform. From this initial architectural specification, the corresponding IP-XACT description will be generated.

Model generation and cost-function definition: Define the step needed for build the system model starting from the application and platform description. Models generation and cost function definition should take care of the design space exploration feedback loop that can be done automatically or manually by the designer.

Tool interface identification: Identification of the required tool interfaces for a shared methodology for granting the interoperability of the different EDA and the design process work-flow. The tool interface identification should be done taking into account the specific needs of each COMPLEX use case defined in D1.1.1 - Definition of requirements, industrial use-cases and evaluation strategy.

The document structure is mainly composed by three parts: The first-one describes the COMPLEX design flow presenting each step in terms of goals and requirements (see Chapter 2), the second-one presents an overview of the tools as they are used for application and platform definition and generation (see Chapter 3), while the third-one gives a brief overview of the case studies done during the project and how they cover the overall design flow (see Chapter 4).
