Computations in hardware/software systems are inherently performed concurrently.

Hence, modeling hardware/software systems requires notions of concurrency.

Data-flow models have been and are still successfully applied in the modeling of hardware/software systems.

In this chapter, we motivate and introduce the usage of data-flow models.

Moreover, we discuss the expressiveness and analyzability of different data-flow Models of Computation (MoCs).

Subsequently, we present SysteMoC, an approach supporting many data-flow MoCs based on the system description language SystemC.

Besides specifying data-flow models, SystemMoC also permits the automatic classification of each different part of an application modeled in SysteMoC into a least expressive but most analyzable MoC.

This classification is the key to further optimization in later design stages of hardware/software systems, such as exploration of design alternatives as well as automatic code generation and hardware synthesis.

Such optimization and refinement steps are employed as part of the extsc{SystemCoDesigner} design flow that uses SysteMoC as its input language.
