The platform-centric SoC procedure is aimed toward the layout of today’s SoC structures with emphasis on real-time, embedded structures. The technique offers a suggestion and an SoC layout atmosphere that promotes an integration of cutting-edge instruments and methods precious for the advance of the platforms. It renders a brand new and higher viewpoint in the direction of co-design methods, whereas additionally elevating a degree of layout abstraction. as the configurable platform gadgets are designed off-cycle, they give a contribution to a basic development in improvement time. by means of incorporating their utilization, the general process 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 strategy to the matter. the rest of this booklet provides a extra thorough exam at the challenge and the proposed procedure. bankruptcy 2 describes the proposed platform-centric SoC layout approach intimately. It illustrates the layout stream and discusses every one major step within the layout approach. Definition of a platform as initially outlined via Sabbagh [96], in addition to the platform-based and platform-centric layout ways, are awarded. The bankruptcy concludes via evaluating the proposed technique with earlier comparable paintings. bankruptcy three lays out the technological history for the proposed SoC layout approach. while the platform know-how 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 off with an creation to UML as a modeling device rather well perceived in the software program engineering neighborhood. it truly is by means of a dialogue on an try through the item administration staff (OMG) to empower UML for the improvement of real-time embedded software program – an attempt so that it will finally culminate in a layout framework referred to as the UML Profile for Schedulability, functionality, and Time Specification [29]. Thereafter, an summary of XML and some different comparable web applied sciences take place. bankruptcy 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 for you to be scalable and appropriate with the proposed procedure. crucial components for every platform item, e.g. structure blueprint, XML-based self-described modules, platform handling instrument, etc., also are mentioned intimately. bankruptcy five presents an in depth remedy of UML extensions for the advance of real-time embedded platforms. The bankruptcy starts off with a structure of the Co-design Modeling Framework (CMF) hierarchy that encompasses 5 different sub-profiles – the accepted application profile (PCUprofile), the Exception Modeling profile (EMprofile), the Interrupt Modeling profile (IMprofile), the Synthesizable Description Language profile (SHDLprofile), and the structure Blueprint profile (ABprofile). every one of those profiles furnishes a layout framework that's particularly adapted for the proposed procedure, and will be capable to meet with the demanding situations posed by means of the layout and try out of real-time embedded SoC-based platforms. The bankruptcy, then, proceeds to debate the area thought for every sub-profile, through the outline of the corresponding stereotypes. bankruptcy 6 applies the platform-centric SoC layout approach, utilizing the CMF profile in UML, to the advance of a simplified camera process that allows you to reveal the use and the robustness of the proposed strategy. particularly, the NiOS improvement board is used to imitate the digicam process the place uncooked picture information are learn from a charge-coupled gadget (CCD), after which JPEG encoded and kept into reminiscence. The bankruptcy starts off with an outline of the Altera’s NiOS process, by means of the particular procedure improvement method that explicitly demonstrates using the proposed method. A quantitative assessment is then offered that compares the improvement rate of the proposed platform-centric SoC layout process opposed to a few replacement techniques utilizing rate estimation types and instruments. bankruptcy 7 concludes the booklet with a precis and a dialogue of destiny instructions for this attempt on platform-based layout.

The chapter, then, proceeds to discuss the domain concept for each sub-profile, followed by the description of the corresponding stereotypes. Chapter 6 applies the platform-centric SoC design method, using the CMF profile in UML, to the development of a simplified digital camera system so as to demonstrate the use and the robustness of the proposed approach. Specifically, the NiOS development board is used to mimic the digital camera system where raw image data are read from a charge-coupled device (CCD), and then JPEG encoded and stored into memory.

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. While UML manifests itself as a powerful solution to designing and managing complex SoC systems, the scalable LPO aids the developer by elevating the design abstraction level as well as providing a set of pre-characterized constraints and knowledge-based environment for the system developer.

Org/rassp). The concepts of model year architectures, in turn, were derived from earlier successful models of production of automobiles over a century. 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].
