Abstract
A model of computation (MoC or domain) is a modeling abstraction of how components interact. Researchers have proposed a variety of MoCs to describe different kinds of interaction semantics. For example, some MoCs may use deterministic data streams to express communication between components while some MoCs may govern the interaction through real-time or some abstraction of time. A specialized MoC imposes stricter constraints on the model and, thus, provides more analyzability. However, specialized MoCs sometimes may not be expressive enough for complex interaction, so one has to revert to using a more generic (and complex) MoC, which comes at the cost of analyzability. Heterogeneous modeling is an innovative technique that proposes composition of multiple MoCs. It attempts to maximize both analyzability and expressiveness by providing finer granularity in the use of MoCs. The Globally-Asynchronous, Locally-Synchronous (GALS) efforts are one example of mixing MoCs. In order to program efficiently using heterogeneous modeling, we build an extensible code generation framework which contributes a new interface for synthesizing and composing domain-specific code.
