Designers of factory automation applications increasingly demand for tools for rapid prototyping of hardware extensions to existing systems and verification of resulting behaviors through hardware and software co-simulation. This work presents a framework for the timing-accurate co-simulation of HDL models and their verification against hardware and software running on an actual embedded device of which only a minimal knowledge of the current design is required. Experiments on real-life applications show that early architectural and design decisions can be taken by measuring the expected performance on the models realized using the proposed framework.

Abstract

Designers of factory automation applications increasingly demand for tools for rapid prototyping of hardware extensions to existing systems and verification of resulting behaviors through hardware and software co-simulation. This work presents a framework for the timing-accurate co-simulation of HDL models and their verification against hardware and software running on an actual embedded device of which only a minimal knowledge of the current design is required. Experiments on real-life applications show that early architectural and design decisions can be taken by measuring the expected performance on the models realized using the proposed framework.
