Electronic System Level Design Tool VisualSim Success Story: TOPS Systems
AI/ML, sensors and cameras going mainstream has made picking and predicting the product architecture into a quantitative art. Volume of data, processing capacity and communication bandwidth has pushed FPGAs, emulators, and prototype boards into obsolescence when it comes to architecture study. AI, high-speed simulation, conformance to safety standards, and traditional performance modeling has enabled system-level modeling to expand the scope of trade-offs, make exploration effective and provide full architecture coverage.
Mirabilis Design has introduced intelligent system-level modeling IP and application templates within VisualSim Architect for architecture exploration and collaborative development for Intellectual Property (IP), SoC, software, and embedded systems. Over 150 application templates and 500 IP components have shown to reduce model development time by 60% and scope of exploration by 15X. We have successfully executed more than 250 projects including rockets, cameras, processors, SoC, satellites, car networks, aircrafts, SSD, High performance computers and display systems.
“Perfect planning and validation of dynamic performance is absolutely essential to eliminate the considerable architectural and algorithmic risks in developing a system running at supercomputer performance. Performance of very data dependent processing such as AI/ML cannot be estimated without simulation”, said Dr. Yukoh Matsumoto, Founder and CEO of TOPS Systems. “We completed the entire architecture modeling effort in VisualSim within three months and achieved an 80% cost reduction for modeling compared with SystemC. Without VisualSim, the modeling would have required over 1.5 years of development effort.”
