EMBEDDED & VLSI
VLSI Design & Development Tools
IDE :- The IAR Embedded Workbench IDE is the framework where all necessary tools are
seamlessly integrated: IAR C-SPY™ debugger, state-of-the -art high-level language debugger.
IAR Embedded Workbench is available for a large number of micro-processors and micro-controllers in the 8-, 16-, and 32-bit segments, allowing you to stay within a well-known development environment also for your next project. It provides an easy-to-learn and highly efficient development environment with maximum code inheritance capabilities, comprehensive and specific target support.
Emulator :- The Emulation Tool Debugger is a JTAG debugger that supports all TI boards. It provides automatic flash download and takes advantage of on-chip debug facilities.
The IAR Emulator provides real-time debugging at a low cost with foll. Features
Execution in real time with full access to the micro-controller
High-speed communication through a JTAG interface
Zero memory footprint on target system
Hardware breakpoints for both code and data
Built-in flash downloader EEM for access also to: State storage, Sequencer and clock control.
Design Entry / Simulation :-
The ModelSim & Qsys Pro debug environment efficiently displays design data for analysis and debug of all languages. Both allow many debug and analysis capabilities to be employed post-simulation on saved results, as well as during live simulation runs with following features
Unified mixed language simulation engine for ease of use and performance
Native support of Verilog, SystemVerilog for design, and VHDL, for effective verification of sophisticated design environments
Advanced code coverage and analysis tools for fast time to coverage closure
Interactive and Post-Sim Debug available so same debug environment used for both
Powerful Waveform Compare for easy analysis of differences and bugs
Synthesis :- The Spectra-Q™ Synthesis Tool is the new synthesis engine, which integrates a new front-end language parser into the Quartus Prime software. With the new front-end parser, designers will see improved language support for all IEEE Register Transfer Level (RTL) languages. Precision RTL also includes expansive support for SystemVerilog-2005 and VHDL-2008. Support for all previously supported languages is also maintained.
