Software-Hardware Co-Design Becomes Real

September 27th, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

Automatic mapping of software onto existing hardware, or using software to drive hardware design, are highly desired but very difficult.


“Hardware/software co-design has been happening for quite a while,” says Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP. “People have been trying to estimate the behavior of the platform and evaluation its performance using real software for quite a while. The industry has been building better simulators, such as Gem5, and Qemu. This has extended into systems where accelerators have been included, where you build models of accelerators and offload your CPUs by running parts of the code on the accelerator."
