Early Optimization of Multicore SoC Architectures Using Synopsys' Platform Architect and Arteris FlexNoC
Hosted jointly by Synopsys and Arteris, this webinar walks through a case study demonstration of early system-level performance analysis and multicore SoC architecture optimization featuring Synopsys' Platform Architect and the Arteris FlexNoC interconnect model for SystemC.
Who should attend: System Designers, Product Architects, SoC Architects, and Project Managers
What Attendees will learn:
- Learn how to efficiently explore and optimize the dynamic system performance of an Arteris FlexNoC based SoC design in SystemC using a mobile device case study example in Synopsys' Platform Architect
- Using the Arteris FlexNoC configuration tool, you'll see how to set initial parameters of the Arteris FlexNoC interconnect and how to generate a SystemC TLM-2.0 AT model of FlexNoC for import and assembly in Synopsys' Platform Architect
- During simulation and analysis, you'll see how to define traffic scenarios and model parameters to explore architectures in Synopsys' Platform Architect, sweep through multiple simulations, and graphically analyze the root cause of performance problems
