For modern embedded systems, the complexity of embedded applications has reached a point where the performance requirements of these applications can no longer be supported by embedded system architectures based on a single processor. Thus, the emerging embedded System-on-Chip platforms are increasingly becoming multiprocessor architectures. As a consequence, two major problems emerge, i.e., how to design and how to program such multiprocessor platforms in a systematic and automated way in order to reduce the design time and to satisfy the performance needs of applications executed on these platforms.
