    For a generic flexible efficient array antenna receiver platform a hierarchical reconfigurable tiled architecture has been proposed. The architecture provides a flexible reconfigurable solution, but partitioning, mapping, modeling and programming such systems remains an issue. We will advocate a model-based design approach and propose a single semantic (programming) model for representing the specification, design and implementation. This approach tackles these problems at a higher conceptual level, thereby exploiting the inherent composability and parallelism available in the formalism. A case study illustrates the use of the semantic model with examples from analogue/digital co-design and hardware/software co-design.
