Most embedded systems consist of distributed but highly interconnected applications. Lots of resources are invested to design and implement reliable and efficient communication systems. This paper introduces a new approach for the prototyping of communication structures and protocols. The developed methodology was embedded in the IFS-flow (interface synthesis flow) that generates glue logic between incompatible tasks and media. The presented approach allows us to construct complex communication prototypes in restricted embedded systems more efficiently. Therefore, five optimization strategies were defined for the generation of interfaces (IFB). The computation of dedicated protocols between the spread interfaces helps us to overcome structural communication gaps comprising an efficient and reliable communication. An example shows the practicability of the approach and presents achievable advantages.
