ion of Abstract Performance Models for System-Level Design Space Exploration ANDY D. PIMENTEL, MARK THOMPSON, SIMON POLSTRA AND CAGKAN ERBAS Computer Systems Architecture Group, Informatics Institute, University of Amsterdam, Kruislaan 403, 1098 SJ, Amsterdam, The Netherlands Received: 24 January 2007; Revised: 27 March 2007; Accepted: 8 May 2007 High-level performance modeling and simulation have become a key ingredient of system-level design as they facilitate early architectural design space exploration. An important precondition for such highlevel modeling and simulation methods is that they should yield trustworthy performance estimations. This requires validation (if possible) and calibration of the simulation models, which are two aspects that have not yet been widely addressed in the system-level community. This article presents a number of mechanisms for both calibrating isolated model components as well as a system-level performance model as a whole. We discuss these model ca...
