The platform-centric SoC strategy is aimed toward the layout of today’s SoC structures with emphasis on real-time, embedded structures. The method presents a tenet and an SoC layout atmosphere that promotes an integration of cutting-edge instruments and strategies beneficial for the advance of the structures. It renders a brand new and higher standpoint in the direction of co-design methods, whereas additionally elevating a degree of layout abstraction. as the configurable platform items are designed off-cycle, they give a contribution to a normal development in improvement time. via incorporating their utilization, the final strategy moves a stability among overall layout flexibility and minimum time-to-market.

In bankruptcy 1, demanding situations within the co-design of SoCs are brought. The bankruptcy in brief describes the technical demanding situations dealing with approach builders and introduces a proposed way to the matter. the rest of this ebook offers a extra thorough exam at the challenge and the proposed approach.

Chapter 2 describes the proposed platform-centric SoC layout technique intimately. It illustrates the layout stream and discusses each one major step within the layout technique. Definition of a platform as initially outlined by means of Sabbagh [96], in addition to the platform-based and platform-centric layout methods, are awarded. The bankruptcy concludes by means of evaluating the proposed procedure with prior comparable work.

Chapter three lays out the technological heritage for the proposed SoC layout procedure. while the platform expertise is mentioned in bankruptcy 2, this bankruptcy offers an outline of the opposite basic applied sciences: the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the Extensible Markup Language (XML). The bankruptcy starts with an advent to UML as a modeling instrument rather well perceived in the software program engineering neighborhood. it truly is by means of a dialogue on an test via the article administration crew (OMG) to empower UML for the advance of real-time embedded software program – an attempt to be able to finally culminate in a layout framework referred to as the UML Profile for Schedulability, functionality, and Time Specification [29]. Thereafter, an outline of XML and some different similar net applied sciences ensue.

Chapter four outlines the constitution of the library of platform items (LPO), in addition to furnishes a entire guide and requisites specification platform item needs to own that allows you to be scalable and suitable with the proposed strategy. crucial parts for every platform item, e.g. structure blueprint, XML-based self-described modules, platform dealing with software, etc., also are mentioned intimately.

Chapter five presents a close therapy of UML extensions for the advance of real-time embedded structures. The bankruptcy starts off with a format of the Co-design Modeling Framework (CMF) hierarchy that encompasses 5 different sub-profiles – the widely used software profile (PCUprofile), the Exception Modeling profile (EMprofile), the Interrupt Modeling profile (IMprofile), the Synthesizable Description Language profile (SHDLprofile), and the structure Blueprint profile (ABprofile). each one of those profiles furnishes a layout framework that's particularly adapted for the proposed procedure, and should be capable to meet with the demanding situations posed by means of the layout and attempt of real-time embedded SoC-based platforms. The bankruptcy, then, proceeds to debate the area notion for every sub-profile, by means of the outline of the corresponding stereotypes.

Chapter 6 applies the platform-centric SoC layout strategy, utilizing the CMF profile in UML, to the advance of a simplified camera approach with a view to display the use and the robustness of the proposed technique. particularly, the NiOS improvement board is used to imitate the camera approach the place uncooked photograph information are learn from a charge-coupled gadget (CCD), after which JPEG encoded and saved into reminiscence. The bankruptcy starts with an summary of the Altera’s NiOS procedure, by means of the particular procedure improvement approach that explicitly demonstrates using the proposed technique. A quantitative assessment is then offered that compares the improvement fee of the proposed platform-centric SoC layout procedure opposed to a few substitute techniques utilizing fee estimation versions and tools.

Chapter 7 concludes the e-book with a precis and a dialogue of destiny instructions for this attempt on platform-based layout.

High-quality digital PDF.

Sample text

Even though commonality in platforms often could compromise product performance and hinders innovation and creativity, it expedites the overall process of developing end products. A typical platform could spawn scores of products that are more quickly and economically upgradeable through an upgrade of the platform itself. Such advantages are greatly desirable in the development of embedded SoC systems today, where quick time-to-market and ease of upgradeability are the dominating factors [138].

A quantitative evaluation is then presented that compares the development cost of the proposed platform-centric SoC design method against the some alternative approaches using cost estimation models and tools. Chapter 7 concludes the book with a summary and a discussion of future directions for this effort on platform-centric design. Chapter 2 PLATFORM-CENTRIC SOC DESIGN METHODOLOGY 2. INTRODUCTION In the proposed platform-centric SoC method, a library of platform objects (LPO) and the UML work collaboratively to enhance the system development process.

In addition, because platforms can potentially yield highvolume production from a single mask set, manufacturers will tend to be biased towards platform utilization to counter the ever increasing mask and manufacturing setup costs. These platform benefits have become even more attractive as the present state of advances in IC technologies results in more readily acceptable system performances that suit a wide range of applications. Although the notion of platforms has existed for years, only recently has it drawn a great deal of interest from the electronic systems design community.
