Carbon Design to distribute MIPS core models
The resulting models will deliver 100% cycle accuracy. The models and virtual platforms will feature integration with gdb and the MIPS Navigator ICS (Integrated Component Suite) to enable interactive debug and analysis.
The accurate models and MIPS-based virtual platforms delivered by Carbon will enable developers to perform architectural tradeoffs, ensure real-time behavior and tune performance in critical functions early in the design cycle. Models of MIPS processor IP and corresponding virtual platforms from Carbon are compiled directly from the implementation RTL code and maintain 100% functional accuracy.
Configuration and generation of the models can be done at any time using Carbon’s IP Exchange web portal. Models are designed for use in Carbon’s SoCDesigner Plus virtual platform and can execute as part of a SystemC or RTL simulation environment.
Carbon Design Systems will demonstrate its architectural analysis, performance optimization and pre-silicon firmware debug solutions in Booth # 1914, 2127 at the 48th Design Automation Conference (DAC) June 6-8 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif.
