The Concurrent Design-Flow Experiment

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

The topic I introduced first was how system design flows are now highly concurrent.  In the production of a system within a very tight timescale, it would be normal to have architecture definition, software development, virtual prototype development, RTL design and verification all happening at the same time, be it IP, sub-system or SoC level design. I represented this as a set of rotating, interacting cogs.
