Abstract: "IASys is an integrated approach to system-level synthesis which allows a complete computer system to be specified using a set of high-level building blocks rather than behavioral level specifications. By reusing domain-specific design knowledge, alternative hardware and software configurations can be rapidly specified and synthesized. Thirty-two different embedded computer systems were synthesized generating a design space with variations of 45% in cost, 20% in power, 120% in area, 50% in program size, and 2000% in performance."
