Design and verification of HW/SW embedded systems
|Fast, early estimation techniques are crucial to achieve optimal designs of large embedded systems while reducing the development time. However, modeling solutions at these early design steps still suffer of important lacks. Most of these embedded systems contains networks or are conceived to be connected to networks such as networks on chip or internet. These networks have an important impact in the systems in development. As a consequence, the modeling of the network effects must be included in early modeling environments. One of the most common techniques for early, fast modeling of large embedded systems is the native execution of annotated SW code on top of a SystemC-based virtual platform. However, SystemC language does not provide the components required for networked system modeling, such as TCP/IP stacks or network models. As a consequence, there are important limitations in both estimating the system performance and checking the integration with the other components in the network. To overcome this limitation, this paper proposes a complete infrastructure for early modeling of networked systems.
