This paper presents a system-level design approach which applies to an embedded telecommunication applications. The presented approach takes into account multilanguages functional specification, multi-level validation, both algorithm and multiprocessor architecture explorations, refinement, software and hardware design, and final prototyping generation. Our design flow combines a different technologies such as MatlabTM, SDL and codesign tool, as well as other related tools, to support all development cycle. A Case study on real world communication device application demonstrates the effectiveness of our approach.
