Abstract: This paper discusses the design methodology of cluster MPSoC for multiple applications. Firstly, a hybrid cluster MPSoC architecture is introduced. Then models for multiple applications are presented in a hierarchical CTPN system. Moreover, an auto-design approach is proposed to generate the merged MPSoC of minimal resources, which integrate the Xilinx tools automatically with short design and synthesis time. The experimental results illuminate that our design methodology is effective and convenient for fast MPSoC design.

Keywords: embedded systems; multiprocessor system-on-chip; MPSoC systems; multiple applications; coloured timed Petri nets; CTPN; design exploration; modelling; mapping design; clusters; clustering.
