Partitioning a system's functionality among interacting hardware and software components is an important part of system design. We introduce a new partitioning algorithm that caters to the main objective of the hardware/software partitioning problem, i.e. minimizing hardware for given performance constraints. We demonstrate results superior to those of previously published algorithms in tended for hardware/software partitioning.
