Today's sophisticated digital designs are rapidly evolving. Software-only simulation of such designs takes weeks or even months. Therefore a new generation of chip design requires a hardware-assisted solution. Hardware acceleration delivers a 10-1000 times performance boost. In the paper technologies of hardware simulation on selected examples are described.
This paper describes a program for the automatic generation of code for Intel's 8051 micro-controller. The code is generated from a place-transition Petri net specification. Our goal is to minimize programming time. The code generated by our program has been observed to exactly match the net model. It has also been observed that no change is needed to be… (More)
