This paper presents COSMOS, a method for modeling and synthesis of complex communicating systems. COSMOS starts from a system-level specification based on an extended finite state machine model allowing for the specification of complex protocols. System-level synthesis is composed of three tasks: partitioning systems into inter-dependent sub-systems, inter-sub-system communication synthesis and architecture generation. The output is a flexible architecture model which includes both hardware and software components. The paper concerns a set of parallel processors communicating through well defined protocols.
