Update: ARM to Offer Cycle-Accurate Virtual Prototyping for Complex SoCs Through an Asset Acquisition from Carbon Design Systems (October 20, 2015)
Carbon’s Automatic Model Generator Integrated within Fujitsu ESL Design Flow WALTHAM, Mass.-- February 20, 2008
--Carbon Design Systems™, the leading supplier of tools for the automatic creation, validation and deployment of virtual hardware models, today announced that it has been named a Cedar-ESL Services Partner by Fujitsu Limited of Tokyo, Japan.
Carbon’s automatic model generation technology has been integrated into Fujitsu’s CedarTM-ESL Services. Carbon Model Studio creates SystemC models for electronic system level (ESL) environments, including those from ARM, CoWare, Synopsys, VaST and others, for Fujitsu’s application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) customers.
“SystemC transaction level modeling (TLM) models are a key component of an ESL design methodology,” notes Takashi Hasegawa, Director, ESL and Verification Department, SoC Design Engineering Division, Electronic Devices Business Unit of Fujitsu Limited. “Carbon’s technology enables the integration of legacy designs into the ESL world and automatically generates hardware accurate ESL models for new designs.”
“Fujitsu has taken a visionary approach to ESL design and it shows through its verification services model and partner program,” notes Scott Seaton, Carbon’s vice president of sales. “Carbon values this relationship.” About Carbon Design Systems
Carbon is the leading supplier of system-level tools to automatically create, validate and deploy software models generated from Verilog and/or VHDL descriptions. Carbon’s models are used in conjunction with SystemC simulation platforms to enable architecture profiling and software validation in parallel with hardware development. Problems can be found and resolved early in the design cycle, rather than waiting for prototypes to be built or silicon to be delivered. Its solutions are based on open industry standards, including SystemC, SCML, Verilog, VHDL, OSCI TLM, MDI, CASI, CADI and CAPI. Carbon’s customers are systems, semiconductor, and IP companies that focus on communications, networking, and consumer electronics. Carbon is headquartered at 375 Totten Pond Road, Waltham, Mass., 02451. Telephone: (781) 890-1500. Facsimile: (781) 890-1711. Email: email@example.com. Web site: www.carbondesignsystems.com
