How Xilinx' Vivado HLS enabled the creation of an in-fabric, processor-free UDP network packet engine
The FPGA vendor's new flagship is now on public release. It adds an array of features, including support for system-level to HDL synthesis.
The technique enables early software development and hardware/software co-design strategies before a project is more rigidly defined in RTL.
Carbon Design Systems' CTO Bill Neifert argues that his company's deal with Samsung sends a clear signal, whether or not you're one of his customers.
How SystemC enables system modelling at higher levels of abstraction, and the creation of virtual platforms.
An evolved ESL-to-RTL methodology flow addresses the ‘discipline gaps’ between software and hardware engineering by using three system level-based software-hardware verification steps. The strategy is already available in TSMC’s Reference Flow 12.
A reference simulator for the latest version of SystemC is now available for public review and comment, writes Accellera's Dennis Brophy. Here's what’s new in the proof-of-concept simulator, and how you can participate to refine the Accellera Systems Initiative’s work for standardization.
Transaction-level modeling (TLM) describes a system by using function calls that define a set of transactions over a set of channels.
Virtual prototyping is not a new technique, but the advent of transaction-level modeling and an increased focus on seven key requirements for their effective use means that today's versions are much more broadly applicable and comparatively future proof.
We report from National Instruments’ annual user conference, NIWeek 2011, held in a sizzling Austin last month.
