We present an approach to estimation of parameters for design space exploration in Model-Based Development, where synthesis of a system is done in two stages. Component qualities like space, execution time or power consumption are defined in a repository by platform dependent values. Connectors are treated as special components; they have platform dependent overhead values for the qualities and composition functions, defining how qualities are computed from the values of connected components. The approach is exemplified with a prototype estimation tool applied to an OFDM-decoding module modelled in SystemC.
