The paper is concerned with the modern methodologies for holistic modelling of electronic systems enabling system-on-chip design. The method deals with the functional modelling of complete electronic systems using the behavioral features of Hardware Description Languages or high level languages then targeting programmable devices -mainly Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) -for the rapid prototyping of digital electronic controllers. This approach offers major advantages such as: a unique

The recent evolution of such design methodologies is marked through references to case studies of electronic system modelling, simulation, controller design and implementation. Pointers for future trends / evolution of electronic design strategies and tools are given.
