15 15 Definition: Definition: The project studies - modeling, - simulation, - design of concurrent, real-time, embedded systems Characteristics: - Components built on top of Java compiler (Soot) - XML as data representation - Concept of migrating models Ptolemy - Introduction Introduction MDL, HDL Computation Models Introduction Ptolemy Project Models Choosing Facts

16 16 Complete separation of the abstract synthax from the semantics. Synthax Synthax, Actor-Oriented design : - models, actors, ports, parameters, channels - represented graphically, XML or by program with specific API Semantics Semantics, the “physical laws” : - models constructed under model of computation - choice of model of computation has deep impact on implementation - interoperability of executable models - hierarchical mix of domains Ptolemy Project Introduction MDL, HDL Computation Models Introduction Ptolemy Models Choosing Facts
