The complexity of multimedia applications in terms of intensity of computation and heterogeneity of treated data led the designers to embark them on multiprocessor systems on chip. The complexity of these systems on one hand and the expectations of the consumers on the other hand complicate the designers job to conceive and supply strong and successful systems in the shortest deadlines. They have to explore the different solutions of the design space and estimate their performances in order to deduce the solution that respects their design constraints. In this paper, the authors propose the modeling of one of the design space possible solutions: The software to hardware task migration.
