This paper describes the architecture and design framework for a multiprocessor system on chip (SoC) solution that is being developed for adaptive, high-performance, embedded real-time control applications. Most of the design-to-implementation stages are automated by software tools avoiding most of the error-prone programming tasks and hardware-related issues. Therefore, the work presented here minimises the interdisciplinary design efforts typical to mechatronic systems design, allowing control engineers to focus mainly on the control laws development. The performance achieved by the proposed architecture allows for a straightforward addressing of implementation requirements for a variety of embedded applications, including micro-electromechanical systems.
