Refinement is a key methodology for SoC design. The proposed IPSIM design environment, based on a C++ modeling library developed on top of SystemC 3.0, supports an object-oriented design methodology, separates IP modules into behavior and communication components and further establishes two inter-module communication layers. The Message Box layer includes generic and system-specific communication, while the driver layer implements higher level user-defined communications as illustrated in a design example.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
