    Changing the Game with Processor Based Emulation
    Published. October 11, 2012

    I have always been fascinated by game changing moves. Some are more successful than others, but the general principle is always the same - coming with a gun to a knife fight. Two of my favorites are from sports. When I was a young rower, the moving outrigger was a game changer for a while and was a fascinating example of a game changing invention. The normally moving seat with fixed shoes and outrigger had been replaced by a fixed seat and moving outrigger and shoes. The advantages were proven scientifically...

    17M Gates in 8 Months with 2 Designers -- What is Your ROI for Higher-Abstraction Design and Verification?
    Published. October 4, 2011

    In their presentation at the recent SystemC Japan conference, Renesas Micro Systems, Inc. (RMS) stated 2 SystemC "beginners" completed a 17M gate design in 8 months, achieving first-pass timing closure at 650 MHz targeting 40nm. Two thoughts came to my mind: Wow!What is their ROI of migrating from an RTL-driven methodology to a SystemC-driven methodology? Thought #2 is the million-dollar question that design teams are facing today. The theoretical benefits of moving to a higher-level...

    Understanding Latency versus Throughput
    Published. September 13, 2010

    One of the effects of adopting a High Level Synthesis design methodology is that the barrier between "Systems designers" and "Hardware designers" is substantially reduced if not totally eliminated. Suddenly, both "Systems designers" and "Hardware designers" are using not only the same input language to specify their models (C++ / System C) but they are also exposed to the same terminology. For this reason, "Hardware designers" are suddenly exposed...
