How standards will enable hardware/software co-design
o much higher levels of abstraction than today's design practices, which are usually at the level of synthesizable RTL for custom hardware or Instruction Set Simulator (ISS) for programmable core processors. This shift will result in totally new system level design environments to capture requirements, to specify functionality and architectures, to explore different mappings and schedulings, to select and encapsulate reusable Virtual Components. To be used at 'system level', Components require several abstract models, expressing e.g. the performance, functionality or cycle-true behaviour. It is exactly the goal of the System Level Design (SLD) Development Working Group (DWG) of the VSI Alliance to specify standard interfaces, standard data formats and standard methods that will help system designers to explore, debug and verify complex system architectures consisting of several Virtual Components by virtual prototyping ple levels of abstraction.
