For several years, the semiconductor industry has not been driven by a single killer application, but by the convergence and consumerization of existing markets. Moreover, the increased complexity that comes with 90nm and smaller geometries has made product development harder and more costly. The net result for engineers is a myriad of severe challenges, including hardware/software co-design, power management and verification. An ESL methodology offers a viable solution to these challenges if it includes a clear-cut path to established implementation flows.

Today, ESL is changing the way designs are done. The benefits are clear, even though there are trade-offs and techniques to consider. With a good understanding of software programming, engineers armed with ESL tools are moving design to the next level of productivity.

Mitch Dale, director of marketing at Calypto Design Systems Inc., discusses more about leveraging ESL techniques.
