SemiWiki.com - High-Level Synthesis for Automotive SoCs | "All and nothing" out of my interests | Scoop.it
Some of the world’s most complex Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) are being developed for automotive applications. These SoCs have heterogeneous architectures with a variety of processors and accelerators that do real-time image image processing for assisted and autonomous driving applications. The Bosch Visiontec team, in Sophia Antipolis, France develops these state-of-the-art SoCs and they recently co-authored a white paper with Mentor, a Siemens Business, that details how they have leveraged high-level synthesis to design these complex ICs.

Traditional SoC design flows start with designers modeling at the system level in MATLAB or languages like System-C or C++. Once the functional trade-offs have been made, designers then implement the design architectures using Register Transfer Language (RTL) level code which is then used for logic synthesis, placement and routing. In the case of autonomous vehicle applications, the algorithms to do image recognition are mathematically intense and the Bosch team found themselves

Virtual Prototyping With Connection to Assembly

Virtual Prototyping With Connection to Assembly | "All and nothing" out of my interests | Scoop.it
“ I think I have mentioned before that in the early days of platform-based design there was a lot of enthusiasm for end-to-end platform design flows covering everything from system-level modeling to implementation assembly; this ultimately drove the IP-XACT standard. Some organizations made significant progress in developing these flows. Philips/NXP and ST were a couple of notable examples who were able to start architecture development in SystemC (which the standard supported) and carry this all the way through to back-end design, supporting co-design and co-verification all the way through. 20329 Then Apple introduced the iPhone, the consumer electronics world turned upside-down and many semiconductor/systems companies re-focused on more existential concerns; outside of a few winners, platform-based methodologies no longer seemed like the most pressing priority. But the concepts and technologies were still valid and useful; as markets have settled and new drivers have become apparent some of these approaches are again becoming popular,”
