Abstract: This paper presents an approach to abstract modeling of hardware/software architectures using hierarchical colored Petri nets. The approach is able to capture complex behavioral characteristics often seen in software and hardware architectures, thus it is suitable for high-level codesign issues such as performance estimation. In this paper, the development of a model of the ARM7 processor is described to illustrate the full potential of the modeling approach. To further illustrate the approach, a cache model is also described. The approach and related tools are currently being developed in the LYCOS system.

Keywords: LYCOS, colored Petri nets, hardware/software codesign, hierarchical Petri nets, performance estimation.
