Ever-increasing embedded system design complexity combined with reduced time-to-market window has revolutionized the embedded system design process. The traditional design techniques (independent hardware and software design) are now being challenged when heterogeneous models and applications are getting integrated to create a complex system on chip. In hardware-software codesign, designers consider trade-off in the way hardware and software components of a system work together to exhibit a specified behavior, given a set of performance goals and technology.
