We present a new methodology to rapidly explore the large design space encountered in hardware/software systems. The proposed methodology is based on a fast and accurate estimation approach. It has been implemented as an extension to a hardware/software codesign flow to enable the exploration of a large number of multiprocessor architecture solutions from the very start of the design process. The effectiveness of this approach is illustrated by a significant application example.
