Custom hardware modeling with QEMU (ELC 2010)

September 4, 2010


The videos of the presentations held at the Embedded Linux Conference 2010 have been recently made public on Free Electrons. I was particularly interested in one speech: Custom Hardware Modeling for FPGAs and Embedded Linux Platforms with QEMU (PDF slides and OGV video). John Williams (PetaLogix) illustrates the work they have been doing on reducing […]

The SPIRIT Consortium Announces Release of the SystemRDL Specification [feedly] via Design And Reuse The SystemRDL semantics support the entire life-cycle of registers from specification, model generation, and design verification to maintenance and documentation. Registers are not just limited to traditional configuration registers, but can also refer to register arrays and memories. DeHaan: Recognizing and […]

A standard to share hardware designs: IP-XACT

March 8, 2009


The Spirit Consortium develops XML schema to ease the sharing of hardware designs between IP providers and system designers. Briefly, when you create an hardware design (in VHDL, SystemC…) you also describe the design with XML files (using IP-XACT schema) that contain information about the external connections, memory map, bus interfaces… and also contain meta-data […]
