It often happens that designers have to integrate different instruction-set processors on a single chip. Typical applications are wireless, image processing, xDSL, network and game processors. This paper deals with the three main problems that make the design of application-specific heterogeneous multiprocessor Systems-on-Chip very hard and expensive: - higher, - level specification; - software support packages design; - on-chip HW/SW communication design.
