Given an application problem, a hardware-software solution is derived such that the synthesized software, a parallel pseudo-program, can be scheduled and executed on the synthesized hardware, a set of system-level parallel computer specifications, with heuristically optimal performance. This is known as system-level cosynthesis of application-oriented general-purpose parallel systems for which a novel methodology called Cosynthesis Methodology for Application-Oriented Parallel Systems, is presented.
Keywords: application-oriented general-purpose multiprocessor systems, comodeling, cosynthesis
