SystemVision Multi-Discipline Development Environment
From conceptual design exploration through detailed implementation, SystemVision is a single design exploration and optimization environment supporting powerful verification and analysis capabilities for challenging multi-discipline designs.
Using SystemVision you can explore concepts, validate performance specifications, investigate architectural partitions, and integrate abstract or implementation-level electronics, sensors/actuators, controls, and embedded software, all in a single virtual environment. Utilizing the power of the IEEE standard VHDL-AMS modeling language, and supporting industry-standard SPICE modeling techniques, SystemVision offers reduced development time, simplified HW/SW integration, and reduced risk of late stage bugs that often jeopardize program success.
SystemVision – A Portfolio of Tools
SystemVision is a multi-discipline design exploration and analysis tool. SystemVision conneXion(SVX) extends SystemVision’s multi-discipline capabilities by connecting multiple domain-specific tools and processes together in a single simulation environment. SVX connects design partitions executed in SystemVision, MathWorks Simulink, National Instruments LabVIEW, SystemC, C/C++, Java, and AUTOSAR over a secure, managed signal channel. SV CAN Network SI is a specialized SystemVision package aimed at CAN network designers who need to analyze the CAN bus physical layer and ensure optimized, lowest cost, error-free network architectures.
Explore design concepts by creating and customizing system schematics using models that represent device behaviors at multiple abstraction levels. Migrate electrical partitions to circuit board implementation via a direct path to Mentor’s PCB design flow.
Unite the partitions of a multi-discipline system and their disparate engineering teams. Provides a virtual environment for early integrated verification and test of digital/analog hardware, software, control algorithms, sensors, actuators, and mechanical plant.
Simulate the design and analyze results from the highest (behavioral) level of abstraction to the lowest (Spice) level of circuit implementation. Account for real-world variability in components, the environment, and operating conditions.
Explore architectural alternatives and employ powerful parametric analysis capabilities to identify simple but effective parameter adjustments that can drive down cost and dial-in performance in the final design.
