SoC Multi-core Architectural Exploration Using Vista
On-demand Web Seminar
This presentation will look at a number of different architectural choices; exploring how the architecture can be quickly characterized, how decisions can be analyzed and understood. Specific examples and metrics will be focused on to demonstrate the effectiveness of Vista's design analysis and optimization capabilities in addressing the challenges associated with complex architectural exploration.
Systems designers today have many potential options for delivering a system which meets application and performance needs while satisfying power requirements. It is critical to understand the implications of these choices; how does one fast processor compare to 2 slower processors for a given application, how would offloading compute intensive tasks effect the overall system performance and power consumption, how can the critical areas for additional optimization be identified.
What You Will Learn
- How ESL tools help shorten the total design cycle
- The latest advancements in reaching verification coverage
- How to enhance your productivity with state-of-the art ESL technology
