>> Presentation at ARM Developers' Conference 2008 in Santa-Clara, California: Register Management of a Complex Multi-Processor Based SoC , Dave Murray, Brian Clinton, Zoltan Sugar for DUOLOG Technologies. Acknowledgements to TI - WTBU Team in Nice: Hedi Boufaied, Bertrand Blanc, Bob Maaraoui, Denis Kuntz.

"With increasing SoC complexity, critical paths are emerging in the integration of the software components of the system causing a significant impact on cost, quality and development schedules. The increasing focus on IP reuse and earlier hardware integration have exposed software integration as a burgeoning critical path. The manual transcribing of information from documents is now leading to resource wastage, questionable quality and poor reusability. This presentation outlines a multi-faceted solution to this problem incorporating a single source SW/HW interface model with a high-level of abstraction, coherency checking and a high-level of collaboration and automation that promotes a correct-by-construction methodology."
