Understanding the rules for a development effort is essential for success. In this paper, we provide an overview of four important rules for a system-on-chip (SoC) development. We portray these rules as members of our development team: Moore, Amdahl, Pareto, and Ohm. Their guidance provides a foundation for our system and architecture optimization. We review a methodology to migrate large software systems to billion transistors SoCpsilas. We offer a background on the rules, detail the design methodology, and explore the derived benefits.
