    Journal of Systems Architecture - Embedded Software Design (Elsevier)

    General Information
    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’s 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.
