D. Gajski and Gong, 1994; Wolf, 2002), a hardware/software partition represents a physical partition of the system functionality into application-specific hardware (coprocessor) and software executing on one or more processors. The hardware/software interface strongly affects partitioning. The aim in this kind of architecture is to improve the system performance. In this sense, partitioning seeks to maximize the overall speedup for a given application. The speedup estimation can be done by a profiling analysis that takes into account typical data sets over which the application behavior is estimated.

1 Microcontroller The MOTOROLA MC68332 (MOTOROLA, 1990a; MOTOROLA, 1990b) consists of a 32-bit microcontroller unit (MCU), combining high-performance data manipulation capabilities with powerful peripheral sub-systems. It contains intelligent peripheral modules such as the time processor unit (TPU), which provides 16 micro-coded channels for performing time-related activities. Highspeed serial communications are provided by the queued serial module (QSM) with synchronous and asynchronous protocols available.

Considering an initial solution in hardware, some operations are selected for moving into software, based on a cost criterion of communication overheads. With the serialization of the operations and analysis of the corresponding assembly code, delays through the software component can be derived. The movement of operations to software is then constrained by the satisfaction of timing constraints. As a second approach to system partitioning, the effect of non-determinism is taken into account, which is caused either by external synchronization operations (send, receive) or by internal data-dependent delay operations (loops, conditionals).
