As reconfigurable architectures are gaining an increasing research and industrial attention, there is a significant need for intelligent tools and methodologies to assist designers with exploration and performance evaluation of such architectures. Towards this goal, we make a first attempt to present a generic system-level modeling and simulation framework which can explore and evaluate reconfigurable systems at design-time as well as at runtime. In this paper, we show the methodology behind the framework and study its key features.
