This paper investigates the suitability of Ptolemy II platform for current complex hardware systems design, modeling, simulation, verification, synthesis and implementation. Systems complexity, lower process nodes, low power, high performance, high cost, short time-to-market, standard-based protocols and successful completion of ASICs constitute a set of current hardware designs challenges.
