Careful design is required to slow down the noncritical parts of the machine for power consumption while still meeting necessary performance goals. • How do we design for upgradeability? 2 Complex systems and microprocessors 9 same generation, with few or no changes. However, we want to be able to add features by changing software. How can we design a machine that will provide the required performance for software that we haven’t yet written? • Does it really work? Reliability is always important when selling products— customers rightly expect that products they buy will work.

A stereotype name is ­written in the form <>. 11 shows a stereotype for a signal, which is a communication ­mechanism. 8 Behavioral description We have to specify the behavior of the system as well as its structure. One way to specify the behavior of an operation is a state machine. 10 shows UML states; the transition between two states is shown by a skeleton arrow. 10 A state and transition in UML. 11 Signal, call, and time-out events in UML. These state machines will not rely on the operation of a clock, as in hardware; rather, changes from one state to another are triggered by the occurrence of events.

2 Complex systems and microprocessors Programmability How many platforms? Real time Low power and low cost Smartphones as platforms 7 Given the small or nonexistent gains that can be had by avoiding the use of microprocessors, the fact that microprocessors provide substantial advantages makes them the best choice in a wide variety of systems. The programmability of microprocessors can be a substantial benefit during the design process. It allows program design to be separated (at least to some extent) from design of the hardware on which programs will be run.
