In this paper, the hardware abstraction layer (HAL) is explained in the context of SoC design. First, a HAL definition is given and the difference between HAL and other similar concepts is explained. Existing HALs are examined and the role of the HAL is explained for SoC design. Finally, a proposal for a standard HAL is presented.
