Platform Modelling and Performance Analysis
an ECSI Workshop
December 9, 2005
(in conjunction with IP/SoC Conference)
As SoCs grow there has been an increased interest in "platform-based design", but there are a number of problems ranging from verification, analysis and indeed programming of the platform. This workshop will focus on one of these topics, which is of most interest to platform users (and is by no means an easy problem): platform modelling and analysis.
Some of the open questions are:
1. What can the platform creators "characterise" in order to make the platform use easier?
2. What tools do platform users need?
3. What kind of business model is likely going to work, for platform creators and users (for both tools and IP)?
The workshop will be run as three sessions with presentations done by invited speakers with an extended panel discussion at the end of each session.
