Using VHDL in System-On-a-Chip Developments
High integration levels of microelectronics will be required to fulfil increasing performance demands. Implementations will move from traditional components towards more advanced single-chip systems. The design methodology will be to integrate complex building blocks.
Designing Space Applications Using Synthesisable Cores
Abstract at MAPLD 1999 (pdf)
Presentation at MAPLD 1999
This paper concentrates on how building blocks for microelectronics are developed in VHDL and how they are purchased, distributed and used in the scope of European Space Agency (ESA) activities, ranging from in-house developments to contractor work and from simple Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) to complex System-On-a-Chip (SOC) designs.
Accelerated Verification of Digital Devices Using VHDL
This paper presents two aspects for improving the verification of microprocessors; program-less verification, and methods for handling large differences in abstraction level between a reference model and the actual design. Program-less verification is a type of pseudo random verification where the notion of a software program executing on the microprocessor has been abandoned.
