Download Co-verification of hardware and software for ARM SoC design by Jason Andrews PDF

By Jason Andrews

Hardware/software co-verification is how you can ensure that embedded method software program works thoroughly with the undefined, and that the has been thoroughly designed to run the software program effectively -before huge sums are spent on prototypes or production.

This is the 1st publication to use this verification strategy to the quickly starting to be box of embedded systems-on-a-chip(SoC). As conventional embedded procedure layout evolves into single-chip layout, embedded engineers has to be armed with the mandatory details to make informed judgements approximately which instruments and method to installation. SoC verification calls for a mixture of services from the disciplines of microprocessor and computing device structure, common sense layout and simulation, and C and meeting language embedded software program. previously, the proper info on the way it all matches jointly has no longer been on hand. Andrews, a famous professional, offers in-depth information regarding how co-verification rather works, easy methods to be triumphant utilizing it, and pitfalls to prevent. He illustrates those thoughts utilizing concrete examples with the ARM center - a expertise that has the dominant marketplace percentage in embedded procedure product layout. The spouse CD-ROM includes all resource code utilized in the layout examples, a searchable publication model, and valuable layout instruments.

* the one ebook on verification for systems-on-a-chip (SoC) at the market

* Will shop engineers and their businesses time and cash by means of exhibiting them tips to accelerate the trying out strategy, whereas nonetheless heading off high priced mistakes

* layout examples use the ARM center, the dominant expertise in SoC, and all of the resource code is integrated at the accompanying CD-Rom, so engineers can simply use it of their personal designs

Additional info for Co-verification of hardware and software for ARM SoC design

Example text

The primary focus of this book is on SoC verification techniques. Although all embedded systems with custom hardware can benefit from co-verification, the area of SoC verification is most important because it involves the most risk and is positioned to reap the most benefit. The ARM architecture is the most common microprocessor used in SoC design and serves as a reference to teach many of the concepts presented in the book. If any of the following statements are true for you, this book will provide valuable information: 1.

A fragment of how a configuration register for a memory controller is implemented is shown in Figure 2-7. For this 32-bit register only 8 bits are meaningful and the register is implemented as multiple smaller registers that are concatenated together to form the register value when read from software. // // // // // ----------------------------------------------------------------------------Offset | Register Name | R/W | Valid Bits | Reset | Description ----------------------------------------------------------------------------0x00 MPMCStConfig R/W 20:19,8:6, 0x0 Static Memory 3,1:0 configuration assign MPMCStConfig = {HWDataReg20to19Q, 10'b0000000000, HWDataReg8to6Q[8:6], 2'b00, HWDataReg4to0Q[3], 1'b0, HWDataReg4to0Q[1:0]); Figure 2-7: Example register implementation 38 Hardware and Software Design Process Software Development Tools Editor OK, maybe an editor is not really a software development tool, but most software engineers spend more time with their editor than any other program.

It provides detailed information and plenty of examples for the most common SoC being designed today, those using ARM microprocessors. The examples most directly relate to the SoC/ASIC/ASSP market where the risk is greatest and mistakes equal money. It is most relevant to software engineers developing code that deals with hardware operation. The book is not a design book to create a new chip or software; it has no grand and glorious top-down schemes for system-level design and hardware/software partitioning.
