The rise of the abstraction level when designing the hardware (HW) and software (SW) parts of multiprocessor systems on chip (MPSoC) permits to master the growing complexity of these systems. However, it generates a huge gap between the concepts of system level specification and those used for implementation and synthesis of HW/SW MPSoC. This paper deals with the system level design for rapid prototyping of MPSoC starting from Matlab/Simulink specification. We propose a new approach to establish a bridge between the system level specification and the HW/SW architecture at the implementation level.
