Trace-driven simulation has been used widely for architectural exploitation in electronic system-level (ESL) designs for complex SoCs (system-on-chips). Most often the trace files are provided by third parties without source code. This makes it difficult to process and manipulate the trace files, e.g. to identify the region of interest (ROI), for efficient and more focused simulations. It is thus necessary to deduce high-level structures and patterns in the trace to facilitate such… CONTINUE READING
