The topic on platform-based system modeling has received a great deal of attention today. One of the important tasks that significantly affect the effectiveness and efficiency of the system modeling is the modeling of IP components and communication between IPs. To be effective, it is generally accepted that the system modeling should be performed in two steps; In the first step, a fast but some inaccurate system modeling is considered to facilitate the simultaneous development of software and hardware. The second step then refines the models of the software and hardware blocks (i.e., IPs) to increase the simulation accuracy for the system performance analysis.
