In this paper we focus on the modelling and architecture exploration of Schneider Electric protection devices at the Cycle Accurate Bit Accurate (CABA) level. The goal is to find the best hardware/software partitioning and improve the tests coverage rate in order to increase the robustness and fault-tolerance of this class of safety devices. This approach is applied on a medium voltage protection relay called Sepam10. This example is considered to be typical for a wide class of devices, thus showing that the modelling approaches used in high complexity System On Chip (SoC) devices are also of great interest for power electronic control devices.
