Platform Based Design at the Electronic System Level presents a
multi-faceted view of the set of problems that the electronic
industry currently faces in the development and integration of
complex heterogeneous systems (including both hardware and software
components). It analyses and proposes solutions related to the
provision of integration platforms by SoC and IP providers in light
of the needs and requirements expressed by the system companies:
they are the users of such platforms which they apply to develop
their next generation products. Further, the book tries to draw a
comprehensive picture of the current "interfaces" between the
platform providers and users, defined by technical requirements,
current design methodology and flows, standards, and finally by the
business context and relationships (which should not to be
underestimated). These producer-consumer, shared "interfaces"
enable (or should enable) the exchange of a well-understood and
complete set of data between both parties to ensure design
efficiency, high productivity and best use of domain-specific
expertise and knowledge.
The problems to be solved are related to modelling of platform
functionality and performance (formalisms, methods, metrics),
interoperability of models, architecture exploration, early SW
development in parallel to the HW platform instantiation,
verification and debugging methods and flows, management of
complexity at various abstraction levels, and the implications of
the trade-offs between the accuracy and complexity of models. The
solutions discussed by the contributors to this book have one
common denominator: these are standards. In the general sense, the
book provides views on why and what kind of standards are the
prerequisite to the deployment of a platform based design
ecosystem, in which cooperation is made possible between all
parties involved in system development: system houses, platform and
IP providers and EDA companies.
The material presented in Platform Based Design at the
Electronic System Level will help system architects, system
integrators, design engineers, IP developers and researchers to
understand the state-of-the-art and future tendencies in various
aspects of modelling of system platforms.
