Abstract

We propose a modeling method used in design space exploration of architectures of embedded systems. Modeling cost for performance evaluation tends to be too high for an architect to evaluate many architecture alternatives. Our method exploits a UML-based model transformation from an architecture expression to a simulation model to reduce the cost. A case study reveals that our method reduces the cost by more than a factor of 1/3 from that of manual modeling.
