Summary form only given. The SoC increasing integration scale as well as the system and customer requirements are important factors for a complete revisit of the development models for electronic products. New customer models ask for software driven electronics. Software engineering is moving to a component-based and MDA development approach to be applied to embedded applications. Hardware engineering is moving to SSDI system level development and reuse methodologies. The two approaches have now to be further developed and combined for next generation SoC to get high quality and adaptable designs at a reasonable development cost. New application-level quality standards have also to be part of the complete development flow. We demonstrated through several examples these new methodologies: system engineering methodology on software radios (UML, PIM (platform independent model) and PSM (platform specific model)) and its current extension to the hardware parts (SCA, OCP potential extensions), system engineering in line with the common criteria development and qualification process for new security products (PP (protection profile) and ST (security target)), development and validation methodology in line with DO254 standard for new safety products in avionics (formal verification). Impacts on SoC architectures and design techniques are discussed.
