Reducing the time-to-market factor is a challenge
for many embedded systems designers. In that respect, hardwaresoftware
partitioning is a key issue which has been studied
during the last two decades. In this paper we present an
extension to recent works dealing with metrics for guiding the
hardware-software partitioning step. This extension builds upon
and complement our own work with metrics in the Design Trotter
project, and is combined with the affinity metric approach. We
show that the proposed extension improves the original affinity
metric in terms of parallelism detection, and thus can help
system designers to make wiser hardware-software partitioning
decisions, which in turn reduces the time-to-market factor.
