<p>Most digital systems consist of a hardware component and software programs that execute on the hardware platform. Obviously, a system can deliver higher performance when we tune the hardware to its software applications and vice versa. Today's novel architectures and the possible use of computer-aided design tools have created new opportunities to find solutions to codesign problems. This survey addresses this challenge, considers different architectures and their uses, and reports on the status of CAD codesign tools, with particular reference to simulation and synthesis.</p>
