Storage technology " takes the center stage " [Law99] in more and more systems because of the eternal push for more complex applications with especially larger and more complicated data types. In addition, the access speed, size and power consumption associated with this storage form a severe bottleneck in these systems (especially in an embedded context).(More)
The idea of Force-Directed Scheduling (FDS) was first introduced by Paulin and Knight to minimize the number of resources required in the high-level synthesis of high-throughput ASICs [3]. In this paper, we reformulate the original FDS algorithm to address the interactive hardware and software design of low-cost but still high-throughput embedded multimedia(More)
Low-power Issues for SoCs by Christian Piguet, CSEM £. For innovative portable products, Systems on Chips (SoCs) containing several processors, memories and specialised modules are obviously required. Performances but also low-power are main issues in the design of such SoCs. Are these low-power SoCs only constructed with low-power processors, memories and(More)
Keeping up with the increase in system design complexityrequires the deployment of extensive engineeringre-use technologies [15], so-called platform-based designtechniques [8]. When creating derivatives of such a complexsystems-on-chip (SOC) platform, verification represents70% of the overall cost. In this process, functionalverification has become a huge(More)
