In this paper, we address the problem of the efficient exploration of the architectural design space for parameterized systems.

Abstract

In this paper, we address the problem of the efficient exploration of the architectural design space for parameterized systems. Since the design space is multi-objective, our aim is to find all the Pareto-optimal configurations that represent the best design trade-offs by varying the architectural parameters of the target system. In particular, the paper proposes a Design Space Exploration (DSE) framework based on a random search algorithm that has been tuned to efficiently derive Pareto-optimal curves. The reported design space exploration results have shown a reduction of the simulation time of up to two orders of magnitude with respect to full search strategy, while maintaining an average accuracy within 3%.
