Hardware/software codesign involves various design problems including system specification, design space exploration, hardware/software co-verification, and system synthesis. A codesign environment is a software tool that facilitates capabilities to solve these design problems. This paper presents the PeaCE codesign environment mainly targeting for multimedia applications with real-time constraints. PeaCE specifies the system behavior with a heterogeneous composition of three models of computation. The PeaCE environment provides seamless co-design flow from functional simulation to system synthesis, utilizing the features of the formal models maximally during the whole design process.
