Carbon Design Systems Shows How to Generate System Models From RTL and Validate Hardware and Software Months Before Silicon Implementation at 2007 Embedded Systems Conference

Carbon's Booth #2537, April 3-5, San Jose Convention Center, California

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2007 --


Carbon Design Systems, the leading supplier of system-level tools for the creation, validation and deployment of system models automatically generated from RTL hardware descriptions, will be exhibiting at the 2007 Embedded System Conference (ESC). The company's demonstrations will show how system architectures can be validated and optimized with their accompanying software months before silicon implementation.

Carbon's SOC-VSP™ Software

Verilog and/or VHDL are compiled by SOC-VSP software into high-performance 'C' objects with transaction-level interfaces added from Carbon's extensive library. These models can be simulated as components using popular system-level simulators from ARM, CoWare, MIPS, and the Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI). These 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 Replay™ technology, set hardware breakpoints, and peek or poke registers with Carbon's intuitive interface.
