Models for Virtual Platforms
Virtual prototyping environments provide an efficient solution for creating software virtual hardware platforms for hardware architecture design and/or embedded software/firmware development. Creation of a virtual platform relies on the assembly of models of hardware devices, also known as intellectual property (IP) blocks, available in the library from tool, semiconductor, or IP vendor. Proprietary or third-party IP models that can’t be found in the library provided by the vendor must be created by the user or a subcontractor.
Intel® CoFluent™ Studio offers an alternative to the manual modeling of IP and IP-level, or platform-level test cases for virtual platforms by providing an efficient graphical modeling entry and automatic device/IP model code generation. It offers significant productivity gains compared to manual programming and can be used by non-experts in modeling languages such as SystemC or DML. It accelerates the availability of a complete virtual platform environment and facilitates the creation of application-realistic workloads/use cases when software is not available yet.
