Hardware/Software Codesign Approach for heterogeneous MPSoC system


Mouna RIABI, Yassine MANAI, and Joseph HAGGEGE


Vol. 18  No. 1  pp. 10-17


The aim of this paper is to provide Hardware/Software (HW/SW) Codesign process for heterogeneous Multi-Processor Systems on Chip (MPSoC). For this process, an efficient HW/SW partitioning procedure is proposed. Two heuristics algorithms based on Genetic Algorithms (GA) and Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) are used to solve multi-objective optimization problem taking into account different constraints (time execution, available area and hardware multipliers). The proposed approaches are then validated on a controller system for an asynchronous motor. A comparison between GA and ABC algorithm is performed to retrieve those with the best time/area performances. The best solution is then implemented on a Zedboard platform.
