A number of techniques and software t o ols for embedded system design have been recently proposed. However, the current practice in the designer community is heavily based o n manual techniques and on past experience r ather than on a rigorous approach to design. To advance the state of the art it is important to address a number of relevant design problems and solve them to demonstrate the power of the new approaches. We chose an industrial example in automotive electronics to validate our

We analyze the results obtained with our approach and compare them with the existing design underlining the advantages o ered by a systematic approach to embedded system design in terms of performance and design time.
