M2C-accelerator facilitates model-based design

Posted: 19 Sep 2008 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:M2C-accelerator? model-based design?

Model-based design (MBD) helps engineers and designers overcome the limitation of a document-based development process by replacing written specifications with comprehensive, system-level mathematical models. The models serve as an executable specification, reducing the need to build physical prototypes. Designers can simulate and explore architectures for implementation, quickly and comprehensively, throughout the development process inserting varying levels of abstraction to ensure that the end product meets both project requirements and system-level behavior. As application complexity increases, simulation performance requires acceleration. The M2C accelerator extends the Xilinx AccelDSP MBD solution by converting floating-point Matlab to fixed-point C++ for accelerated MBD verification eliminating a potential bottleneck.
