In my last blog, I talked about model-based design and Ken Karnofsky commented on it. Ken is the senior strategist for signal processing algorithms at MathWorks. He said that I got it somewhat wrong and so I was eager to find out more from him. He basically told me that considering model-based design as only being an abstraction method misses some important aspects of it.


Grappling with Model-Based Design

A couple of weeks ago I saw a press release go by. The title was “Faraday Accelerates the Development of SoCs with Model-Based Design”. They claimed that this helped them speed up simulation by more than 200X and reduce gate count by more than 50%. Not bad I thought. But then I stopped to think [...]

Ah, the joys of summer vacations and scheduling around them. I was disappointed that Synopsys was to have a press release while I was on vacation – especially when it was on one of my favorite topics – virtual prototypes. To make matters worse, by the time I got back, their key guy was about [...]
