What Does MBSE Have to Do with SoCs?

August 17th, 2021 - By Vincent Thibaut


In technology, the only constant is change, sometimes at a dizzying pace. One emerging trend is how product specifications, additions and changes are passed onto system-on-chip (SoC) design teams. Traditionally, this transfer is done by exchanging documents, models (perhaps Simulink) and some form of written use-case descriptions. However, this process is very cumbersome, subjective and error-prone. It is also a very poor method for documenting and tracking revisions required by agile design teams employing best practices. It may not be a problem when building catalog products, but the world has changed.
