Conceptual design for DO-254 projects
Sometimes referred to as "architectural exploration" in the FPGA design process, the conceptual design phase develops a high-level design concept that can be assessed to determine the potential for the resulting implementation to meet requirements.
If the design is simple, this step may be merged with the detailed design phase.
Developing the Conceptual Design
: The DO-254 process defines conceptual design as a "high-level design concept that may be assessed to determine the potential for the resulting design implementation to meet the requirements." In...
Mentor Graphics Vista™
enables DO-254 compliant conceptual design
For simpler conceptual designs, engineers may use tools such as Microsoft Visio to create graphical representations of device blocks and functions.
For more complex projects, however, Mentor Graphics Vista enables the team to perform a detailed architectural exploration and trade-off analysis.
A complete TLM 2.0-based solution, Mentor Graphics Vista helps system architects and SoC designers make viable architecture decisions, prototype and analyze complex systems, understand the key scaling algorithms, and ensure optimized architecture, shorter implementation cycle and first time success.
