The Matlab and SDL Codesign Technique (MASCOT) method integrates modeling of dataflow and control dominated parts at the system level. Based on the established languages specification and description language (SDL) and Matlab, MASCOT provides a modeling and simulation technique which realizes the communication and synchronization between the two domains. Moreover, it offers modeling guidelines for a disciplined and efficient way of using the technique. Most of the tedious details of modeling synchronization and communication is handled automatically and is transparent to the user. Consequently, the user can focus on the application and on the important tradeoffs to be made at the system level.
