ProximusDA teams with STMicroelectronics to develop distributed SOC TLM virtual prototypes
May 23, 2013 // Paul Buckley
ProximusDA GmbH, a company based in Munich, Germany, has collaborated with STMicroelectronics to develop the next generation of software virtual prototypes.
The collaboration combines ProximusDA’s expertise in parallel code distribution with STMicroelectronics’ deep knowledge of Transaction Level Modeling (TLM) and advanced distributed-computing architecture.
ProximusDA has developed a technology to enable the distribution and execution of complex distributed applications over multi-core CPUs and GPUs. The foundation of this technology relies on a formal and explicit system-level communication modeling at the transaction level throughout the complete system. ProximusRealizer, a ProximusDA product announced in 2012 at DAC in San Francisco, applies its distributed execution kernel to support critical SOC design tasks.
ProximusRealizer builds high-performance distributed software virtual prototypes (SVP) by leveraging multi-cpu/multi-core hardware available in today's off-the-shelf servers. It enables HW & SW architects to explore multiple HW/SW trade-offs in a fraction of time that it would take with a traditional SystemC (OSCI) TLM and earlier than with FPGA approaches.
The next generation of System-on-a-Chip (SOC) requires critical attention to the development of the embedded software due to the intrinsic nature of the distributed computing architecture. At the same time, the design of heterogeneous multi-core architectures is demanding massive computing resources to fuel software virtual prototypes.
ProximusRealizer is currently available in production.
