This paper introduces timed synchronous dataflow (TSDF) which enables the codesign of the synchronous DSP and analog RF portions of an application. The semantics and scheduling techniques of TSDF are detailed. A 16 QAM modem with a QAM synthesizable DSP transmitter, cosimulating with a RF modulator and RF power amplifier is demonstrated.
