<p>Hardware-software codesign has become a strategic technology for modern electronic systems, from single VLSI chips containing embedded cores to large distributed systems made of a heterogeneous network of processors communicating via sophisticated protocols. Codesign is the key enabling technology but may also be the bottleneck for faster progress in digital systems, especially signal processing ones.</p><p>In a roundtable held last June in Las Vegas at the Design Automation Conference, participants looked at the problems, methodologies, strategies, and future of codesign.</p><p><it>D&T</it> thanks participants David Agnew (Bell-Northern Research), Rolf Ernst (Technical University of Braunschweig), Randolph E. Harr (DARPA/ETO), Vijay Nagasamy (VSIS, Inc.), Pierre Paulin (SGS-Thomson), Jerry S. Sullivan (Design Technologies), Hiroto Yasuura (Kyushu University). Our moderator was Daniel D. Gajski (University of California, Irvine). Robert P. Larsen (UC, Irvine) and <it>D&T</it> Editor-in-Chief Ken Wagner also attended.</p><p>ACM SIGDA sponsored the roundtable, and the Design Automation Conference provided the facilities. Kaushik Roy (Purdue University and <it>D&T</it>'s Roundtable editor) organized the event.</p>
