Selection and Implementation of a HW/SW Co-Design Environment


This thesis will give a short introduction into different hardware/software-CoDesign approaches. You will present different languages and tools. Further on, you will take a closer look at the hw/sw-CoDesign using SystemC and carry out a comparison with a classical design. In this context, you shall implement an exemplary step-motor controller which is executed on a combination of microcontroller and CPLD.

HW/SW-CoDesign is meant in terms of the collective design of:

  • SW for a CPU/microcontroller
  • Structure of a PLD (CPLD/FPGA)
  • a corresponding interface
