Abstract . In recent years, modeling languages have been widely used for algorithm development and verification in embedded system design methodologies. Such languages allow behavior descriptions or structure descriptions to be expressed in a specification that is defined by a consistent set of designers. It is expected that modeling language-based designs can reduce development times without sacrificing quality. This paper presents a case study of the design of a memory interface algorithm for peripheral memory circuits using a modeling language. The results of the case study demonstrate that the number of lines of source code of the modeling language-based design flow has been reduced by 86% and 78% compared to a traditional register transfer language (RTL) and the C language, respectively.
