Home network is becoming an important part of global information infrastructure, where the embedded home gateway is a key information device to implement the interconnection and Internet access between devices in a home. In this paper, a SoC (system-on-a-chip) for embedded home gateway (EHGSoC) is proposed, which provides an integrated processing platform with the support of multiple network protocols, multiple hardware interfaces and reconfigurable computing. The hardware-software co-design and co-verification of the EHGSoC is deeply explored, whereas a co-design methodology with reconfigurable architecture is a focus. The aim of this research is to develop an EHGSoC and its corresponding system products, which are low power, high performance-to-price ratio, open and dependable.
