End-to-End Automated Hardware/Software Co-Design using Embedded Development Tool for SoC Design
For efficient hardware/software co-design, Space Codesign® Systems has developed SpaceStudio™, a technology to create virtual platforms, the only embedded systems development tool that allows system architects to perform hardware/software partitioning with an innovative drag & drop mechanism, moving components from hardware to software and vice versa. As a result, there is no more need to recode VHDL, change memory mapping or be restricted to predefined hardware. SpaceStudio is an end-to-end automated ESL (Electronic System Level) technology with libraries targeted for the aerospace and multimedia industries.
With increased pressure for faster time-to-market solutions in the embedded systems applications market, SpaceStudio's sophisticated development tool addresses the need for rapid software application development. The revolutionary SpaceStudio™ software takes end-to-end hw/sw co-design automatically from high level functional specification to the architectural and RTL (Registered Transfer Level) coding phase.
Accelerate Embedded Systems Design Development using SpaceStudio Hardware Software Co-Design where:
- Software development can start immediately before the hardware becomes available
- Early validation prevents unnecessary design iterations
- Modifications are immediately reflected and do not require recoding
- Higher abstraction leads to greater reuse of existing validated code
Lower Development Costs with Eased System-On-Chip (SoC) Design Implementation:
- Less development time is required since the SpaceStudio™ solution automates many design tasks
- Create optimized hardware through validation of software running on hardware simulation
Create Better Embedded Systems Code with HW/SW partitioning:
- Handle greater product complexity with the same resources
- Automated system simulation, verification and validation processes enable faster review of a larger number of test cases and thus yield a more efficient design
Integrates Smoothly With Other EDA Tools in Your Embedded System Design Flow
- SpaceStudio is capable of addressing complex embedded systems design, including with multicore processors
- SpaceStudio comes with libraries targeted for the aerospace and multimedia industries
All in all, end-to-end automation of complex embedded systems design, including with multicore processors, reduces the time required to perform System-On-Chip (SoC) design in FPGA or ASIC. This translates to lower development cycle times and costs and better code for complex embedded systems.

Hands-on workshop held on Tuesday, 19 May 2015 at the IMEC facility of Leuven
Come and join us at IMEC for a free workshop about SpaceStudio's innovative technology to create virtual platforms.
The workshop will present SpaceStudio end-to-end flow (algorithm validation, architecture exploration and implementation) along with hands-on exercises.
