The Andres Project: Analysis and Design of Run-Time Reconfigurable, Heterogeneous Systems
Source: Technical University of Vienna
Today's heterogeneous embedded systems combine components from different domains, such as software, analogue hardware and digital hardware. The design and implementation of these systems is still a complex and error-prone task due to the different Models of Computations (MoCs), design languages and tools associated with each of the domains. Though making such systems adaptive is technologically feasible, most of the current design methodologies do not explicitly support adaptive architectures. This paper presents the ANDRES project. The main objective of ANDRES is the development of a seamless design flow for Adaptive Heterogeneous Embedded Systems (AHES) based on the modeling language SystemC.
