A challenge in the design space exploration of todays' multimedia system-on-chip (SoC) designs is to rapidly evaluate the large number of different processor types. This limitation is resolved by our methodology, originated from the SIMBA1 project. It automatically generates a Sys- temC performance model of the software code with respect to the chosen(More)
Verification based on prototypes in the target application environment proved to be reliable but also costly feedback. To decrease the design time and effort in early development stages a more frequent evaluation is supported by models. Assumption on UHF RFID specific constraints brings advantage by the possibility to extend models to higher abstraction(More)
Developing modern integrated and embedded systems require well-designed processes to ensure flexibility and independency. These features are related to exchangeability of hardware targets and to the ability of choosing the target at a very late stage in the implementation process. Especially in the field of ultra high frequency radio frequency(More)
In this paper, we present a model of an UHF RFID tag for system and application level simulation. The prime focus is on the radio frequency link. The model describes carrier frequency dependent behavior based on the envelope signal description with the value of the carrier frequency being time invariant parameter. The background idea is to model the ASIC(More)
This paper introduces a description methodology to be used in heterogeneous, multi-HDL (hardware description language) system designs. Complex microelectronic embedded systems contain more and more concurrently designed subsystems, which are mostly coded in different HDLs to get best model performances. Verification of all subsystems in one environment(More)
Enhanced RFID tag technology especially in the UHF frequency range provides extended functionality like high operating range and sensing and monitoring capabilities. Such functionality requiring extended system structures including data acquisition units, real time clocks and active transmitters causes a high energy consumption of the tag and requires an on(More)
