COLLABORATIVE R&D – MODELSThe project will develop an unified environment for the design of system applications on parallel platforms based on CPU, multicore, manycore, FPGA and heterogeneous Systems on Chips. The design tools composing this environment will provide an unified SW/HW specification interface and systematic procedures for composing models at different abstraction levels allowing for the automatic validation, drastically reducing the verification and debugging efforts.
The implementation of processing demanding applications can be satisfied by using new multi/many-core processing platforms, but new designs or porting IPs on them is difficult and costly. The integrated design flow of this project intends to provide: portability of IPs, systematic system design explorations, high level synthesis ofexecutables, and systematic test-bench generation at different design abstraction levels. All means to achieve cost-effectiveness of designs on parallel platforms.
