A UML frontend for IP-XACT-based IP management
—IP-XACT is a well accepted standard for the exchange of IP components at Electronic System and Register Transfer Level. Still, the creation and manipulation of these descriptions at the XML level can be time-consuming and error-prone. In this paper, we show that the UML can be consistently applied as an efficient and comprehensible frontend for IP-XACT-based IP description and integration. For this, we present an IP-XACT UML profile that enables UML-based descriptions covering the same information as a corresponding IP-XACT description. This enables the automated generation of IP-XACT component and design descriptions from respective UML models. In particular, it also allows the integration of existing IPs with UML. To illustrate our approach, we present an application example based on the IBM PowerPC Evaluation Kit. Keywords-ESL design, RTL design, IP-XACT, IP Management, UML Profile
