The development of embedded systems (especially in the area of FPGAs) is becoming more and more difficult, due to the increasing demands and complexity of applications and technology. Therefore, the need of methods which can be used to dynamically control reconfigurable systems is rapidly increasing. This leads to the development of a model based software able to generate and control a test system for reconfigurable hardware platform. The development of this software requires not only the use of exiting Integrated Development Environment, but also the use of some developed frameworks like the Eclipe Modeling Framework (EMF), the Graphical Modeling Framework (GMF) and the openArchitectureWare (oAW). The hardware part has also been developed with the help of existing softwares widely used in the field of development of embeeded systems. This book can be served as illustration of different steps involved in the development process of the software.
