HardWare/SoftWare (HW/SW) partitioning and task scheduling are the crucial steps of HW/SW co-design. It is very difficult to achieve the optimal solution as both scheduling and partitioning are combinatorial optimization problems. In this paper a heuristic solution is proposed for scheduling and partitioning on Multi-Processor System-on-Chips (MPSoC). In order to minimize the overall execution time, the proposed algorithm assigns different priorities to different tasks according to their out-degree and the software execution time. Task with higher out-degree possesses higher priority.
