Carbon Design Systems Exhibits at DATE 2007 and Hosts Luncheon Seminar on Concurrent Hardware-Software Design and Debugging

Carbon's Stand M30, April 17-19, Acropolis, Nice, France

NICE, FRANCE -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 6, 2007 --


Carbon Design Systems is the leading supplier of system-level tools for the creation, validation and deployment of fast cycle-accurate hardware models automatically generated from RTL descriptions. Carbon will be hosting a luncheon seminar and exhibiting at the Design Automation and Test (DATE) 2007 Conference. The free seminar will describe a virtual platform for concurrent hardware and software design and debugging. Demonstrations at the Carbon exhibit will show how a system's architecture can be optimized and the accompanying software validated months before silicon implementation.

Carbon's SOC-VSP™ Software

Verilog and/or VHDL are compiled by SOC-VSP software into high-performance hardware models with transaction-level interfaces added from Carbon's extensive library. These models can be simulated as part of a system-level simulation using popular platforms from ARM, CoWare, MIPS, and the Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI). Carbon's models enable system architects to profile performance and explore software-hardware boundaries with cycle accuracy. Architectural deficiencies can be discovered and fixed early in the design cycle. Hardware engineers can debug their designs with 100% visibility and dump waveforms in either VCD or FSDB formats. Firmware engineers can quickly iterate through their code with Carbon's new Replay™ technology, set hardware breakpoints, and peek or poke registers with Carbon's intuitive interface.
