The Nlview™ basic engines automatically generate schematics at the gate, register-transfer, block and system-level. With S-engine Concept Engineering introduces a radically new concept of visualization and smart editing technology. EDA tool manufacturers working with high-level system structures can now easily create modern system-level and IP-centric design and visualization tools with built-in editing capabilities.
Automatic schematic generation has been enhanced to allow visualization of higher levels of abstraction, such as interface connection and intelligent IP-on-the-fly management to easily handle configurable IP blocks.
Integrated with EDA tools, S-engine helps designers of system-level, SoC, NoC and IP products to assemble, visualize and modify behaviour and architecture of their systems interactively.
Place-and-route techniques developed by Concept Engineering produce clean system-level schematics for complex designs. When integrated into high-level synthesis tools S-engine provides excellent control and visibility over the synthesis process.
Please see also the S-engine data sheet (PDF file).
The new schematic engine supports a mix of system-level, RTL and gate-level technologies in a single schematic diagram and helps to understand complex systems consisting of building blocks (IP) from many different sources.
Concept Engineering′s automatic system-level schematic generation engine is available as an optional engine (S-engine) to the Nlview Widget Product Family.
