Abstract:

The SOCRE program focused on developing a simulation engine for real-time emulation of large, complex mixed signal IC designs. The methodology utilizes the BEE2 reconfigurable computing platform with a compute capability at or near teraopsec performance levels, allowing it to perform real-time evaluations of architectures and algorithms as well as real-time verification of the system performance. A silicon implementation was then synthesized using an automatic flow, avoiding re-entry of the design description. The design system has the ability to emulate chip performance at full-rate and in-system, allowing easy exploration of higher performance, lower power design options, and the automated chip generation insures rapid SOC IC implementation from a common design description.
