Intel CoFluent Studio for System Architecting
Intel CoFluent Studio is a visual model-driven development (MDD) solution for creating executable specifications of complex hardware software systems.
Intel CoFluent Studio can be used to model and simulate the behaviour, timing requirements, architecture and performance estimates (throughput, latency, load, power, memory, cost) of any electronic system: HW IP, embedded SW application, mixed HW/SW multiprocessor system. Use cases of the system are modelled so the automatically generated transaction-level SystemC code can be used as verification testbench.
Behaviours are described with intuitive graphical notations and ANSI C/C++ code, although algorithms can be left undefined and abstracted to their sole execution time. Platforms are built by assembling generic models of universal components like processors, integrated circuits, memories, busses, interfaces. Each generic model provides variable design parameters to easily adjust its behaviour and performance characteristics.
Intel CoFluent Studio allows for behavioural and performance estimation without the need for embedded software application code, firmware, or a precise description of the platform with models of each component/IP core.
• No hardware IPs are needed
Building an Architecture
A simple model of a platform can be created by placing basic elements: processors, links and memories. Attributes can be added to these blocks to further characterise them, so for instance a processor can be of type ‘Hardware’ running at a relative speed of ‘AsicSpeed’, or it could be of type ‘Software’ and we would set processor like attributes (e.g. concurrency level) . Once this platform is created the Timed-Behavioural model can be mapped to the elements within the platform and an Architecture model created.
Intel CoFluent Studio comes with a range of fully functional examples, including:
AXI Memory Controller
Hard Disk system
Consumer Video Terminal (MPEG-2 transmission)
TCP/IP Stack and MAC layer
Additional information on the Intel CoFluent Studio package can be found in the following Intel datasheet:
Linux is supported for LICENSING ONLY
