Automatic Construction of Models for Analytic Design Space Exploration Problems
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Due to the variety of application semantics and also the target platforms used in embedded electronic system design, it is challenging to propose a generic and extensible analytic design-space exploration (DSE) framework. Current approaches support a restricted class of application and platform models and are difficult to extend. This paper proposes a framework to capture the system functionality, a flexible target platform, and a binding policy explicitly using coherent constraint-based representations; together with a method for automatic construction of DSE problem models from them. Heterogeneous semantics is captured using constraints on logical clocks. The applicability of this method is demonstrated by constructing DSE problem models from various combinations of application and platforms models. Time-triggered and untimed models of the system functionality and heterogeneous target platforms are used for this purpose. The constructed models can be solved using different solvers and heuristics.
