Abstract: In conventional multiprocessor SoC (MPSoC) design methods, we find two problems: lack of SW code portability and lack of early SW validation. The problems cause a long design cycle. To resolve them, we present a concept of two-layer hardware-dependent software (HdS). The presented HdS consists of hardware abstraction layer to abstract the sub-system architecture and SoC abstraction layer to abstract the global MPSoC architecture. During the exploration of global and sub-system architectures, the application pr…
