We introduce a framework for synthesis of behavioral models in which design information is represented using an automaton model. This model offers the advantage of supporting different constraints (e.g., timing, resource, synchronization, etc.) with a uniform formalism. The set of all feasible execution traces (schedules) is constructed and traversed using efficient BDD-based implicit state-traversal techniques. As an application example of this formalism, we present a novel scheduling/control-generation algorithm under environmental constraints where both the design and constraints are represented using automata. We present an algorithm that generates a minimum-latency schedule and a control unit representation. This approach is able to exploit degrees of freedom among interacting components of a multimodule system during scheduling, and is well suited for system-level design, where component encapsulation and interfacing are important
