And when this key architectural decision might involve combining both depending on your design’s use-case and demands placed upon it.
But you were NOT afraid to ask.... It's time for some answers.
SEMICON West showed a distinct thematic shift away from preserving Moore's Law to assessing the architectural implications of AI, as EDA was brought into the event.
The second part of this feature looks at how Wave Computing's objectives with its dataflow processing unit for AI mapped to the use of emulation in its development.
Continuing our series on high-level synthesis (HLS) for low power design. Part Two details how HLS helps you make and evaluate architectural decisions.
This case study shows how the evaluation of various design options requires a thorough approach to system-level modeling.
Using UML to define a software-defined modem SoC in terms of decoupled constraints - the order of activities, the timing they have to meet, and the available resources
Simulation speed is a key issue for the virtual prototyping (VP) of multiprocessor system-on-chips (MPSoCs). The SystemC transaction level modeling (TLM) 2.0 scheme accelerates simulation by using interface method calls (IMC) to implement communication between hardware components. Acceleration can also be achieved using parallel simulation. Multicore workstations are moving into the computing mainstream, and symmetric [...]
The analysis of important power and temperature metrics for chip design is becoming increasingly inefficient when attempted at the register-transfer level. The article proposes the fundamentals of a system-level modeling strategy that will shrink design times, provide more opportunities for architectural exploration, and deliver significant power savings.
The verification, test and debug of SystemC models can be undertaken at an early stage in the design process. To support these techniques, the SystemC Verification Library uses a concept called data introspection. It lets a library routine extract information from SystemC compound types, or a user-specified composite that is derived from a SystemC type. […]
