<p>It is argued that a hardware/software codesign methodology should support the following capabilities: integration of the hardware and software design processes; exploration of hardware/software tradeoffs and evaluation of hardware/software alternatives; and model continuity. A codesign methodology that supports many of these capabilities is outlined. The methodology is iterative in nature and serves to guide codesign exploration with the uninterpreted/interpreted modeling approach. It integrates performance (uninterpreted) models and functional (interpreted) models in a common simulation environment.</p>
