Paris, France - CoFluent Design's CoFluent Studio and Docea Power's Aceplorer are now part of an interoperable solution that accelerates power exploration and optimization of electronic systems, allowing systems architects to optimize power usage more efficiently. The interoperability between CoFluent Studio and Aceplorer allows for describing all the architectural dimensions of an electronic system and analyzing them from a single model.
CoFluent Studio is a system-level toolset for modeling real-time embedded applications and use cases, and simulating their execution on multiprocessor/multicore platforms. Models are described graphically in standard unified modeling language (UML) or with the CoFluent domain-specific language (DSL). Transaction-level modeling (TLM) SystemC code is automatically generated for behavioral, time and performance prediction.
Docea’s Aceplorer models, explores, and optimizes static and dynamic power and thermal behavior of whole electronic systems. It integrates a consistent power data management methodology for capturing and simulating power behavior. It maximizes model reuse across teams and design flows from system-level to silicon measurements.
Both tools share a common methodological approach that separates the architecture from the applications.
CoFluent Studio provides a specific instrumentation interface to generate the activity of platform components into Value Change Dump format (VCD) that Aceplorer can interpret and run on the power model, enabling users to capture complex and dynamic use case models, including computations and communications scheduling aspects, for behavioral, time and performance exploration and optimization. The same models can now be used for detailed power and thermal exploration and optimization within Aceplorer. Users of CoFluent Studio don’t need to re-capture models into Aceplorer and can rely on a single system-level reference description.
Aceplorer relies on a power state model to describe power information for the different components of the system. A platform architecture model describes voltage and clock domains and how those components are interconnected in the system. These models can be captured directly in Aceplorer and simulated for power and thermal analysis.
CoFluent Design provides system-level modeling and simulation tools for executing use cases and analyzing performance of embedded devices and chips. CoFluent Studio generates SystemC transactional models from UML diagrams and standard C that describe complex multi-OS, multicore embedded systems. CoFluent Reader enables efficient exchange of executable specifications with all project stakeholders and contractors.
