Abstract: In the digital part of large-scale phase array radio telescopes, the dominant streaming signal processing part is configured at run-time through a reactive and decentralized control and monitoring part. Interfacing and synchronizing these two parts without altering the behavior and performance of the dominant signal processing part is an issue when they are first considered in isolation. To address this issue before going to implementation, we propose to raise the level of abstraction, by expressing system-level specifications (in terms of application, architecture, and mapping) based on models. In the application model, the model of the control part and the model of the signal processing part are synchronized based on a notion of time that is known only to the control part. In the architecture model, the control model has a tree-like structure, whose leave nodes are interfaced with the computational nodes in the signal processing part. The mapping is based on iterative and interactive transformations that lead to an implementation-level specification, from where we consider that different implementation tools can take over to implement different parts of the system.
