Increasing complexity and shrinking schedules push designers to use new methodologiesBy Graham Hellestrand, Founder, CTO, and Strategy Officer, VaST Systems Technology
Embedded system architectures increasingly feature multi-processor configurations with large numbers of independent buses and bus-bridges. Conventional design and verification strategies are not capable of meeting business and technical objectives at this level of complexity.
In the first part of this series, we highlight trends in embedded system design. We then review conventional embedded design and verification techniques, and explain the tradeoffs associated with each approach. In the second part of the series, we will present and discuss the concept of architecture-driven design using virtual system prototyping.
