Application-Specific Architecture Compilation

Objective

The ASAC project explored techniques for the creation of system-level design tools to ensure optimisation of hardware performance and hardware/software partitioning.
The project explored techniques for the creation of system level design tools to ensure optimization of hardware performance and hardware/software partitioning. Work was targeted on producing an optimized, fully detailed and documented plan for achieving the final project goals, which were to develop a set of computer aided design (CAD) tools to allow systems designers to:
specify and design concurrent hardware/software systems;
build explicit models of the environment in which the target system will work;
support top down methodologies (global architectural design, trade offs, global performance model, etc);
support bottom up methodologies (performance verification, explicit building of system parts, etc).
The goal of the one-year definition phase was to achieve a joint understanding between all partners of system design problems; this would form the basis upon which to define the requirements for CAD tools and systems at the system design level.
