IP-XACT™ Specification Enables Rapid, Reliable FPGA and Processor-based Design
Creating embedded designs using sophisticated silicon IP can be a significant challenge for designers, and the breadth of integrated software and hardware tool support for the processor is a critical concern, especially when the pressure is on to create rapid prototypes and live targets that enable all project team members to progress their area of the design simultaneously. A small change to the hardware can have serious implications in the software domain.
Target technologies, such as FPGAs, can be used to rapidly implement both prototype and final designs, but only if both the hardware and software design’s IP content and interaction is well understood in the first place. To unleash the full potential of that IP, it is important to have a full understanding of the IP and the design.
The IP-XACT design environment provided by The SPIRIT Consortium enables a range of design tools and capabilities linked to that IP to be instantly accessed, creating a range of targets that enable design simulation, synthesis, functional verification and software development at the push of a button.
