Read the full article
Modern approaches of «System on chip» (SoC) designing are considered in the article. SoC is defined as a design technology, distinctive tags of this technology are noticed, defects of traditional design flows, including PLD/FPGA-flows, are indicated. The main directions of design methods and flows development for SoC are defined, the common structure of effective process of SoC-designing is considered. The common description of entire/electronic system level (ESL), its sublevels and data about applied design language and tools are given. In conclusion, SoC perspectives are estimated, the most important problems in this technology, demanding to be researched, are specified.
