we are involved in european R&D projects (INSYDE, COMITY) on this subject,
mainly for the purpose of codesign of HW/SW system eg. in Telecoms
or embedded SW in aerospace systems.

Information on the projects can be downloaded from

Other pointers are the followings:

-> the INSYDE project finished in 97, but work still
on-going; the project addressed the integrated design of HW/SW systems
based on the following languages: OMT, SDL, VHDL and C

-> the COMITY project, still ongoing; the project aims at providing a codesign environment for
embedded HW/SW systems, based on formalisms such as
SDL, Lustre, MATRIXx, Statecharts and VHDL.

An important pointer for this project is also the site of a
new spin-off company AREXSYS
that markets a new solution for codesign based on COMITY
results. It starts with an SDL specification of the
global system, then performs automatically the
partitioning (=transformation) into C code for SW parts
and VHDL code for HW parts.

VERILOG's ObjectGEODE interfaces to AREXSYS tool to propose
an integrated solution for HW/SW codesign. See the latest news at
