Description

Efficient design of embedded processors plays a critical role in embedded systems design. Processor description languages and their associated specification, exploration and rapid prototyping methodologies are used to find the best possible design for a given set of applications under various design constraints, such as area, power and performance.

This book is the first, comprehensive survey of modern architecture description languages and will be an invaluable reference for embedded system architects, designers, developers, and validation engineers. Readers will see that the use of particular architecture description languages will lead to productivity gains in designing particular (application-specific) types of embedded processors.

Key Features

  • Comprehensive coverage of all modern architecture description languages... use the right ADL to design your processor to fit your application;
  • Most up-to-date information available about each architecture description language from the developers...save time chasing down reliable documentation;
  • Describes how each architecture desccription language enables key design automation tasks, such as simulation, synthesis and testing...fit the ADL to your design cycle;

Readership

Designers of Microprocessors and Systems-on-Chip (SOC), Verification/Validation engineers at companies globally such as Microsoft, Honeywell, Intel, AMD, IBM, HP, NVIDIA, Analog Devices, Marvell, Texas Instruments, Samsung, Hitachi, Sony, Fujitsu, Toshiba, ST Microelectronics, NXP, Freescale, Infineon, NOKIA, Qualcom, etc. Graduate students/researchers in modeling and specification of programmable systems, including processors, coprocessors and memory architectures.
