Overview:
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
