Designing complex heterogeneousmultiprocessor Systemon- Chip (MPSoC) requires support for modeling and analysis of the different layers i.e. application, operating system (OS) and platform architecture. This paper presents an abstract system-level modeling framework, called ARTS, to support the MPSoC designers in modeling the different layers and understanding their causalities. While others have developed tools for static analysis and modeled limited correlations (processor-memory or processor-communication), our model captures the impact of dynamic and unpredictable OS behaviour on processor, memory and communication performance. In particular, we focus on analyzing the impact of application mapping on the processor and memory utilization taking the on-chip communication latency into account. A case-study of real-time multimedia application consisting of 114 tasks on a 6-processor platform for a handheld terminal shows our frameworks co-exploration capabilities.
