CoFluent Studio v4.0 Generates Interoperable Models for TLM-2 LT, AT and SCML-2 and Delivers Eclipse-Based C++ Integrated Development Environment for Boosting Productivity
San Jose, California – May 31, 2011 – CoFluent Design, a leading Electronic System Level (ESL) company that provides system-level modeling and simulation to accelerate innovation in embedded devices, today announced the new v4.0 major release of its flagship product, CoFluent Studio.
System designers use CoFluent Studio for hardware/software system modeling and simulation in consumer, communication, transportation and industrial electronics. CoFluent Studio generates SystemC code from graphics described either in standard UML/SysML or in CoFluent domain-specific language.
CoFluent Studio translates graphical diagrams into SystemC for hardware modeling and verification. CoFluent Studio eases and accelerates the creation of SystemC transaction-level models as graphical capture reduces complexity, facilitates design understanding and exchange of ideas, and automatic code generation improves productivity.
“CoFluent models are initially created in a platform-independent way by adopting a pure behavioral approach”, said Vincent Perrier, CoFluent Design CTO. “A CoFluent model can be seen as a representation of a system’s functional core, describing its functional inputs/outputs and internal behavior. The generated code structure and API has been optimized to facilitate the integration of models into third-party SystemC-based virtual prototyping environments. CoFluent Studio v4.0 generates automatically gateways for connecting generated SystemC models to standardized TLM-2.0 Loosely-Timed (LT) and Approximately-Timed (AT), as well as SystemC Modeling Library (SCML) v2.0 interfaces.”
In order to facilitate the debug of generated SystemC model, CoFluent Studio v4.0 also integrates the advanced Eclipse C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT), providing an integrated C++ builder, launcher and debugger with roundtrip engineering capabilities. Roundtrip engineering enables modifying user-reserved areas directly in the generated SystemC code for immediate rebuild and debug, without going back to graphical editing. Changes in user-defined algorithms or attributes are automatically propagated back into the graphical model description.
CoFluent Studio v4.0 also improves collaborative model design and teamwork with facilitated graphical model reuse and integrated support for version control systems.
“CoFluent Studio V4 is yet another major milestone in CoFluent Design’s history”, said Stéphane Leclercq, CoFluent Design CEO. “It delivers further productivity, flexibility and openness to users with tighter integration to Eclipse and full support of standard technologies: C/C++, UML and MATLAB in input; SystemC TLM in output. We’re expecting a very successful adoption of this new release that should help us strengthen our comfortable advance against competition.”
CoFluent Design will demonstrate a pre-release of CoFluent Studio v4.0 on June 5-9 at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) 2011 in San Diego where it exhibits on booth number 1815.
CoFluent Studio v4.0 will be generally available in the fourth quarter of 2011.
About CoFluent Design
CoFluent Design™ provides standards-based 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/SysML 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.
CoFluent is used throughout the product development lifecycle for:
· Innovation: capturing with minimal effort the design intent in reusable models that mix new features and legacy, allowing for early patent application
· Optimization: finding the optimal architecture and power efficiency through design space exploration free of the full hardware/software code
· Validation: defining use case scenarios for validating the real-time behavior, predicting performance and generating test cases for implementation
