This document provides an analysis of design elements whose implementation involves algorithmic tasks and hardware resources which must handle large amounts of data or which otherwise present communication data flow impasses to the timely or functional fulfillment of a design. It proposes a methodology for evaluating candidate resources and selecting those which reduce communication complexity and meet system requirements. The techniques of this methodology should integrate with other steps in the design process so that necessary information is not ignored or lost. They should also be easily automated, since the number of combinations involved may be intractable if attempted by hand. As an indication of future research, it presents background information on resources used in the design of such systems and addresses the implications of introducing physical constraints on these design elements.
