    The authors describe a systematic, heterogeneous design methodology using the Ptolemy framework for simulation, prototyping, and software synthesis of systems containing a mixture of hardware and software components. They focus on signal-processing systems in which the hardware typically consists of custom data paths, finite-state machines (FSMs), glue logic and programmable processors. The softwa...

    As system design grows increasingly complex, the use of predesigned components, such as general-purpose microprocessors can simplify synthesized hardware. While the problems in designing systems that contain processors and application-specific integrated circuit chips are not new, computer-aided synthesis of such heterogeneous or mixed systems poses unique problems. The authors demonstrate the fea... View full abstract»

    A methodology using a VHDL (VHSIC hardware description language) to create executable models of computer architectures independent of implementation attributes is described. The authors present such a model of a processor architecture known as the WM as the first step in developing an implementation. Simulations using the model can provide performance measurements such as potential parallelism. Th... View full abstract»

    The development of an embedded-computer system with a visual interface is described. The authors detail the use of a target system simulator and a prototype printed circuit board (PCB), which facilitated a concurrent approach to the design of the hardware, software, and housing. They outline this codesign process and illustrate its effects with comparative data from the earlier VuMan 1 project.< View full abstract»

    Procedure 5012 of Mil-Std-883, which describes requirements for the logic model, the assumed fault model and universe, fault classing, fault simulation and reporting of test results for digital microcircuits is described. The procedure provides a consistent means of measuring fault coverage regardless of the specific logic and fault simulator used. Procedure 5012 addresses complex, embedded struct...
