Communication synthesis aims to transform a system with processes that communicate via high level primitives through channels into interconnected processes that communicate via signals and share communication control. We present a new algorithm that performs binding/allocation of communication units. This algorithm makes use of a cost function to evaluate different allocation alternatives. The proposed communication synthesis approach deals with both protocol selection and interface synthesis and is based on binding/allocation of communication units. We illustrate through an example the usefulness of the algorithm for allocating automatically different protocols within the same system.
