Stopover at the authors' better half web site! - contains interactive discussion board with the authors!Electronic approach point (ESL) layout has mainstreamed - it really is now a longtime strategy at lots of the world's top system-on-chip (SoC) layout businesses and is getting used more and more in procedure layout. From its genesis as an set of rules modeling technique with 'no hyperlinks to implementation', ESL is evolving right into a set of complementary methodologies that allow embedded process layout, verification and debug via to the and software program implementation of customized SoC, system-on-FPGA, system-on-board, and whole multi-board structures. This e-book arises from event the authors have won from years of labor as practitioners within the digital method point layout region; they've got obvious "SLD" or "ESL" battle through many phases and fake starts off, and feature saw that the shift in layout methodologies to ESL is ultimately happening. this can be in part as a result of ESL applied sciences themselves are stabilizing on an invaluable set of languages being standardized (SystemC is the main notable), and use types are being pointed out which are starting to get genuine adoption. ESL layout & VERIFICATION deals a real prescriptive consultant to ESL that studies its earlier and descriptions the simplest practices of today.Table of ContentsCHAPTER 1: what's ESL? bankruptcy 2: TAXONOMY AND DEFINITIONS FOR THE digital procedure point bankruptcy three: EVOLUTION OF ESL improvement bankruptcy four: WHAT ARE THE ENABLERS OF ESL? bankruptcy five: ESL move bankruptcy 6: standards AND MODELING bankruptcy 7: PRE-PARTITIONING research bankruptcy eight: PARTITIONING bankruptcy nine: POST-PARTITIONING research AND DEBUG bankruptcy 10: POST-PARTITIONING VERIFICATION bankruptcy eleven: IMPLEMENTATION bankruptcy 12: software program IMPLEMENTATION bankruptcy thirteen: USE OF ESL FOR IMPLEMENTATION VERIFICATION bankruptcy 14: study, rising AND destiny clients APPENDIX: record OF ACRONYMS * presents vast, accomplished insurance now not to be had in the other such e-book * vast worldwide attraction with an the world over known writer staff * stuffed filled with state-of-the-art content material from extraordinary specialists

Sample text

A hardware implementation expert may not know very much about the software processes beyond the defined hardware–software interfaces. A software development expert may wonder about the algorithmic specification they are implementing, and how it can be analyzed before detailed implementation proceeds. A verification engineer may wish to understand how their discipline can move up to the ES level, and the different kinds of issues that may be important there. This book provides a good opportunity for specialists in all aspects of the design flow to fill in gaps in their experience and knowledge base and improve their understanding of the overall tradeoffs and issues.

2. Buffered (also includes FIFO) — This is the most elemental form of controlled communications that can be made between two concurrent tasks. It allows for the execution rates of two functions to be different and thus provides some degree of electrical and timing isolation between them. If the buffer depth is greater than one, as would be the case with a FIFO, then rate independence can also possibly be assured, at least to the depth of the FIFO. 3. Coprocessor — Although this may sound like a processor-dependent term, it means that the information processed across the two functions is being shared in some manner.

This page intentionally left blank CHAPTER 2 TAXONOMY AND DEFINITIONS FOR THE ELECTRONIC SYSTEM LEVEL When standards or industry groups first get together, they often have the problem that each participant has their own words, phrases, and terms that they use to explain their ideas or concepts (while of course acknowledging that there are also “political” agendas that some advance in standards bodies using certain terms and language). As a result, no one agrees with each other’s opinions until they realize that the definitions they are using are the problem.
