Abstract A hierarchical platform-based design (Hi-PBD) method is put forward for SoC system design. This method divides SoC system design flow into three levels (i.e. system model level, virtual components level and real components level) to achieve separation of function from structure and separation of computation from communication. Hi-PBD defines two mapping processes (i.e. design planning and virtual-real synthesis) to go through all the three design levels. Hi-PBD supports reuse of both the three level design templates and the two mapping results, which increased reusing efficiency greatly. Besides, Hi-PBD boosts up design flexibility by means of supporting revision at all the three levels, and ensures the final design target satisfies performance requirements through a novel performance constraints transmission strategy. Experiments indicate Hi-PBD method improves SoC high level design efficiency by 30%-40%, and this method achieves platform template reuse ratio by 75%-90%.
