Abstract-- This paper presents a method for estimating
the extreme case bounds (upper-bound and lower-bound)
on the running time of a source program on a target
hardware architecture. The source program may be any
block of code containing data processing and control
statements. The target architecture is specified by a set of
functional units, a set of storage units and an
interconnection network.
Hardware/Software (HW/SW) co-synthesis [7] refers to the
design approach which mixes hardware and software
implementations of complex numerical systems in order to
reduce the design cost while satisfying the performance
requirements. A hardware implementation has better
performance, whereas a software implementation has lower
