Hardware/software codesign grew out of system-level synthesis. ASICs offer performance advantages at the expense of post-design- time programmability. This contrasts with computer architecture, which focuses on support for a wide variety of end-use programming scenarios. Currently neither hardware synthesis nor hardware/software codesign describes the system-level design represented in CODES+ISSS. CODES were the name of the International Conference on Hardware/Software Codesign. ISSS was the name of the International Symposium on System Synthesis.
