General Information =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D Design of embedded systems is an extended activity for different markets such as aeronautics, telecommunications, consumer electronics, audiovisual, automotive, etc. The strong requirements for many applications in these areas (real-time, power consumption, cost and many others) do necessary the simultaneous use of both hardware and software to design and implement in a successful product. Besides this, the more and more complex systems would need to be designed by engineers with deep knowledge in computer architecture if the software is not taken advantage of as powerful tool that facilitates the work of designing. Traditional methodologies for designing embedded systems distinguish hardware and software separately, avoiding the relationship of both during the first phases of the design cycle. Nowadays, fortunately Hardware/Software co-design involves many technologies and methods, making easier the electronic engineer=92s work. Nevertheless, there are still many challenges, trends and open possibilities in this area that it is necessary to know. According to the above-mentioned, this special issue seeks to explore the last advances in the Hardware/Software co-design. In this special issue, we seek original, high quality articles, clearly focused on theoretical or practical aspects of the Hardware/Software co-design of embedded systems, including but not limited to the topics shown below:
- Frameworks for Hardware/Software co-design.
- Architectures: - Embedded processors and Systems on Chip (SoC). - DSPs and systems for real-time. - Reconfigurable processors and FPGAs. - Multiprocessors and Multiprocessor System-on-Chip (MPSoC). - Networks on Chip (NoC).
- Methodologies and tools for designing: - CAD tools. - Modelling HW/SW systems with hardware description languages. - Compilers, interfaces and protocols. - Operating system support. - Concurrency and parallel programming.
- Co-verification and co-simulation.
- Performance analysis.
- Applications and case studies.
