We present a design flow for the generation of application-specific multiprocessor architectures. In the flow, architectural parameters are first extracted from a high-level system specification. Parameters are used to instantiate architectural components, such as processors, memory modules and communication networks. The flow includes the automatic generation of communication coprocessor that adapts the processor to the communication network in an application-specific way. Experiments with two system examples show the effectiveness of the presented flow
