Modern multiprocessor embedded systems execute a large number of tasks on shared processors and handle their complex communications on shared communication networks. Traditional methods from the HW/SW co-design or general purpose computing domain cannot be applied any more to cope with this new class of complex systems. To overcome this problem, a framework called Distributed Operation Layer (DOL) is proposed that enables the efficient execution of parallel applications on multiprocessor platforms. Two main services are offered by the DOL: system level performance analysis and multi-objective algorithm architecture mapping. This paper presents the basic principles of the DOL, the specification mechanisms for applications, platform and mapping as well as its internal analytic performance evaluation framework.
