    Kyle Boelte: IMG Selfies, Memoir, and the World Beyond the Self



    When I was a teenager in Colorado during the late '90s, I liked to climb 14ers — 14,000-foot mountains. I'd often hike with friends, and at... Continue »

Co-Synthesis of Hardware & Software for Digital Embedded Systems

Co-Synthesis of Hardware & Software for Digital Embedded Systems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Co-Synthesis of Hardware and Software for Digital Embedded Systems, with a Foreword written by Giovanni De Micheli, presents techniques that are useful in building complex embedded systems. These techniques provide a competitive advantage over purely hardware or software implementations of time-constrained embedded systems. Recent advances in chip-level synthesis have made it possible to synthesize application-specific circuits under strict timing constraints. This work advances the state of the art by formulating the problem of system synthesis using both application-specific as well as reprogrammable components, such as off-the-shelf processors. Timing constraints are used to determine what part of the system functionality must be delegated to dedicated application-specific hardware while the rest is delegated to software that runs on the processor. This co-synthesis of hardware and software from behavioral specifications makes it possible to realize real-time embedded systems using off-the-shelf parts and a relatively small amount of application-specific circuitry that can be mapped to semi-custom VLSI such as gate arrays. The ability to perform detailed analysis of timing performance provides the opportunity of improving the system definition by creating better phototypes. Co-Synthesis of Hardware and Software for Digital Embedded Systems is of interest to CAD researchers and developers who want to branch off into the expanding field of hardware/software co-design, as well as to digital system designers who are interested in the present power and limitations of CAD techniques and their likely evolution.

Book News Annotation:

For CAD researchers and developers expanding into hardware/software co-design, or digital system designers interested in present and emerging CAD techniques, presents techniques for building complex embedded systems, which provide a competitive advantage over purely hardware or software implementations of time-constrained embedded systems. Taking advantage of recent advances in chip-level synthesis that allow the synthesis of application-specific circuits under strict timing constraints, explains how timing constraints can be used to determine what part of the system function must be delegated to dedicated application-specific hardware and what part delegated to software that runs on the processor. Also demonstrates how to perform detailed analyses of the timing performance in order to create better prototypes. Revised from a 1993 doctoral thesis for Stanford University.
