Hierarchical heterogeneous modeling is an approach for modeling heterogeneous embedded systems. It is a solution to manage the heterogeneity problem of the embedded systems and it helps to reduce the complexity of embedded systems modeling. However, the borders between hierarchical levels are opaque. Domain polymorph components, which are another approach to heterogeneity, can automatically adapt their behavior to the semantics of the model in which they are used. This paper proposes to use domain polymorph components at the border of the hierarchical levels of a heterogeneous model to make the semantic adaptation between these levels explicit.
