Hardware/software co-verification is find out how to ensure that embedded procedure software program works adequately with the undefined, and that the has been effectively designed to run the software program effectively -before huge sums are spent on prototypes or production.

This is the 1st e-book to use this verification strategy to the swiftly becoming box of embedded systems-on-a-chip(SoC). As conventional embedded process layout evolves into single-chip layout, embedded engineers has to be armed with the required details to make expert judgements approximately which instruments and technique to install. SoC verification calls for a mixture of services from the disciplines of microprocessor and laptop structure, common sense layout and simulation, and C and meeting language embedded software program. previously, the proper details on the way it all suits jointly has now not been on hand. Andrews, a famous professional, offers in-depth information regarding how co-verification quite works, tips to succeed utilizing it, and pitfalls to prevent. He illustrates those thoughts utilizing concrete examples with the ARM center - a know-how that has the dominant marketplace proportion in embedded process product layout. The better half CD-ROM comprises all resource code utilized in the layout examples, a searchable book model, and important layout instruments.

* the one publication on verification for systems-on-a-chip (SoC) at the market

* Will shop engineers and their businesses time and cash by means of displaying them tips on how to accelerate the trying out approach, whereas nonetheless averting expensive mistakes

* layout examples use the ARM center, the dominant expertise in SoC, and the entire resource code is incorporated at the accompanying CD-Rom, so engineers can simply use it of their personal designs

Sample text

Creating a feature matrix is a good way to sift through the data to make comparisons. Software investment is a major consideration for switching the processor. Embedded guru Jack Ganssle says the rule of thumb is to decide if 70% of the software can be reused; if so, don’t change the processor. Most companies will not change processors unless there is something seriously deficient with the current architecture. When in doubt, the best practice is to stick with the current architecture. 15 Chapter 1 Hardware Design Once the architecture is set and the processor(s) have been selected, the next step is hardware design, component selection, Verilog and VHDL coding, synthesis, timing analysis and physical design of chips and boards.

Here is a computer scientist’s definition: A programming model is a model used to provide certain operations to the programming level above and requiring implementations of all of the architectures below. Practically, the programming model for a microprocessor consists of the key attributes of the CPU that are necessary to abstract the processor for the purpose of software development. As an example of a programming model, consider the ARM9E-S CPU from ARM. From the technical reference manual (TRM) we find that the ARM9E-S implements the ARM v5TE instruction set that includes the 32-bit ARM instruction set and the 16-bit Thumb instruction set.

21 Chapter 1 9. You have no clue what this stuff is all about and want to learn something to at least sound intelligent about the topic at your next interview. Scope and Outline This book presents practical techniques to verify integration of SoC hardware and software. It provides detailed information and plenty of examples for the most common SoC being designed today, those using ARM microprocessors. The examples most directly relate to the SoC/ASIC/ASSP market where the risk is greatest and mistakes equal money.
