The heterogeneity of modern MPSoC architectures, coupled with the increasing complexity of the applications mapped onto them has recently led to a lot of interest in hybrid performance modeling techniques. Here, the idea is to apply different modeling and analysis techniques to different subsystems/components of an architecture/ application. Such hybrid techniques often turn out to be more efficient and accurate compared to relying on a single analysis technique for the entire system. However, the challenge associated with this approach is to combine the different analysis results effectively to obtain conservative performance estimates for the entire system.
