Current and future SoC will contain an increasing number of heterogeneous multiprocessor subsystems combined with a complex communication architecture to meet flexibility, performance and cost constraints. The early validation of such complex MP-SoC architectures is a key enabler to manage this complexity and thus to enhance design productivity.In this paper, we describe an abstract, high level CPU subsystem model that captures the specificities of such MP-SoC architectures, along with a timed… CONTINUE READING
