Part of the Studies in Systems, Decision and Control book series (SSDC, volume 195)


The chapter is devoted to different design methodologies targeting complex embedded systems. The hierarchy of levels is introduced, as well as Y-Chart proposed by Prof. Daniel Gajski. Using the Y-Chart, some basic methodologies are discussed such as bottom-up, top-down and meet-in-the middle. The third section is devoted to platform-based design of embedded systems. Next, the peculiarities of ASIC-based design are discussed. The last section is devoted to very important problem of increasing the energy efficiency of embedded systems.
