Domain-Specific Front-End For Virtual System Performance Exploration

Janne Vatjus-Anttila
Abstract—Domain specific modelling (DSM) is used typically on various computer application domains to alleviate application programming by altering error prone text editing work to graphical modelling and code generation. One rather different domain is design space exploration of embedded computer systems which composes greatly from complex programming phases resulting abstract application and platform models needed in system simulations. Objective of this paper is to show that the advantages of DSM can be harnessed perfectly well to this engineering domain. Previously has been shown that with a little pinch of imagination the concept of DSM can be applied on virtual system modelling phases. In this paper we describe how DSM tool and domain specific language are applied to practical exploitation of virtual system model, i.e. to performance simulation and analysis of simulation results. We share also pros and cons from explored appliance of DSM for performance exploration which according our research is valid method.

Index Terms—Back-annotation, embedded system, DSM, performance exploration, simulation, virtual system.
