This paper presents a performance and energy consumption modeling technique for embedded systems. The proposed method adopts a formal model based on Coloured Petri Nets for modeling the functional behavior of processors and memory architectures at a high-level of abstraction. The applicability of the proposed method is illustrated by evaluating a set of applications and a general-purpose microcontroller. Experimental results demonstrate an average accuracy of 96% in comparison with the respective measures acquired from the real hardware platform. Moreover, the high-level behavioral representation of platforms allows the rapid analysis of performance and energy consumption of complex systems.
