Overcome the time and visibility limitations of simulation and of gate-level and RTL-based strategies to achieve full-chip analysis.
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.
