Combining hardware components with an executable specification language facilitates the specification prototyping of an embedded distributed system. The specification language should cover process management, timing, and communication commands that real-time executive and communication task services of every node prototype can interpret. We use a technique that employs attribute grammars and either a macroprocessor or Prolog to execute the language. The overall prototyping technique consists of the following steps: (i) defining a concrete specification language, including a description of its semantics through an attribute grammar; (ii) using text macros or Prolog definite clause grammar to implement a translator prototype that encodes this attribute grammar; (iii) designing a trial architecture and identifying its reusable components; and (iv)using the trial system architecture and the devised specification language to specify a target application system, followed by macroprocessor- or Prolog-driven expansion of that specification into executable code.
