The quality of signal processing systems such as a software defined radio or a communication modem is dependent on the performance of the selected hardware platform. Early design explorations enable the designer to gain insights into implementation challenges, architectural decisions to enhance performance and power, and hardware/software partitioning before Register-Transfer level (RTL) and software are available.
In addition, early design explorations assist architectural design decisions that facilitate planning for current and future requirements. Designers can further extend the design explorations to conduct fault analysis and identify test cases for verification.
This article presents the system level modelling and simulation methodology to architect a signal processing platform for software-defined radios or high-speed communication modems early in the design flow.
