System-level synthesis is the task of automatically implementing application models as hardware/software systems. It encompasses four basic subtasks, namely decision making and refinement for both computation and communication. In the past, several system-level synthesis approaches have been proposed. However, it was shown that each of these approaches has drawbacks in at least one of the four subtasks. In this paper, the authors present their efforts towards a comprehensive system-level synthesis by combining two academic system-level solutions into a seamless approach that automatically explores and generates pinaccurate implementation-level models starting from a formal application model and a generic MPSoC platform.
