SDSoC Development Environment and Methodology

(ref.004906A)

1 day

Objectives

  • Anyone interested in quickly adding hardware acceleration to a software system should attend this training.
    • Identify candidate functions for hardware acceleration by using the TCF profiling tool
    • Use the System Debugger's capabilities to control the execution flow and examine memory and variables during a debug session
    • Move designated software functions to hardware and estimate the performance of the accelerator and the effect on the entire system
    • Override tool defaults to improve the performance of the individual accelerators and the overall system
