Carbon Design Systems Presents Virtual System Prototyping at DATE

3/1/2006 - At DATE 2006, Carbon Design Systems will be demonstrating its virtual system prototyping software product -- SOC-VSPTM -- that allows RTL (Verilog and VHDL) designs to be easily imported into an ARM® RealView® SoC Designer environment. SOC-VSP enables multiple levels of design abstraction to be combined in a single system model. Models can include: 'C', SystemC, RTL, processor models, and transaction-level models. SOC-VSP is used by system architects and software developers to validate their chip architecture and embedded firmware on a hardware accurate model.

Carbonís Technical Seminar & Luncheon
A Virtual System Prototyping Methodology for ARM Processor-based SoCs
Carbon and ARM will present a joint seminar on electronic system level (ESL) tools and an accompanying methodology for system-on-chip (SoC) design that includes architectural modeling, performance analysis, firmware development, and system validation. The session will show how Carbonís SOC-VSP and ARMís RealView SoC Designer are used to develop and validate ARM processor-based SoC designs. The methodology and tools presented in the seminar enable early architecture and firmware validation using cycle-accurate, transaction-level models in a high-performance system simulation environment.

Tuesday, 7th March 10.00 - 19.00
Wednesday, 8th March 10.00 - 18.00
Thursday, 9th March 10.00 - 17.00

About Carbon
Carbon is delivering a high-performance virtual system prototyping solution that enables a system prototype to be rapidly assembled and functionally validated on the desktop months before silicon. Carbonís new software approach allows multiple levels of abstraction to be validated together including C, SystemC, Verilog and VHDL RTL, IP cores, transaction-level, and instruction-level models. The key to SOC-VSP is silicon accuracy and performance; the ability to execute billions of cycles and boot embedded operating systems, all with desktop software. The company is headquartered at 375 Totten Pond Road, Suite 100/200, Waltham, MA. 02451. Telephone: +1.781.890.1500, Fax: +1.781.890.1711, Email:
