Performance simulation techniques play a key role in the architectural exploration phase of embedded systems design. Modern mobile devices support diverse applications that are enabled by rapid increase of computational power of mobile platforms. A brisk performance evaluation phase is required after the application modelling to evaluate feasibility of new applications on a platform. To reduce the modeling effort in performance simulation and to reduce time to market, the Application modeling and performance simulation phases must be seamlessly integrated. The landmark techniques in this area are developed around some key concepts which we explain first. Then we investigate each landmark contribution and mention the way each one of them addresses, extends and/or employs these key concepts. After mentioning the related work done in this area, we elaborate the methodology and tools which could be used as a potential solution to achieve the goal of seamless integration of application design and performance simulation.
