  • Hardware platform has to be abstracted
  • Interface to the application software is the “API”
  • Software layer performs abstraction:
  • Programmable cores and memory subsystem “hidden” by RTOS and compilers
  • I/O subsystem with Device Drivers
  • Network with Network Communication Software
  • Platform API Application Software Software Software Platform Hardware Platform Hardware Input devices Output Devices I O network API Network Communication RTOS Device Drivers Compiler BIOS Software Platforms Nexperia™ -DVP Software Architecture Supports multiple OSs and middleware software Abstracts platform functionality via consistent APIs Nexperia™-DVP Streaming Software Encapsulates implementation of streaming media components (hardware and software) Nexperia™ Platform Software OS independent device drivers for on-chip and off-chip devices Nexperia-DVP Software Applications MiddlewareJavaTV, TVPAK, OpenTV, MHP/Java, proprietary ...

  • A platform is, in general, an abstraction that covers a number of possible refinements into a lower level. For every platform, there is a view that is used to map the upper layers of abstraction into the platform and a view that is used to define the class of lower level abstractions implied by the platform.
  • Platforms Application example:
  • Automotive Power-Train Control Design: from car manufacturer specs to software design to architecture selection to IC implementation
  • Project in collaboration with Cadence, Magneti-Marelli, ST Microelectronics, Accent
  • Power-Train Control System
  • Electronic device controlling an internal combustion engine and a gearbox
  • The goal
  • offer appropriate driving performance (e.g. torque, comfort, safety)
  • minimize fuel consumption and emissions
  • Relevant characteristics
  • strictly coupled with mechanical parts
  • hard real-time constraints
  • complex algorithms for controlling fuel injection, spark ignition, throttle position, gear shift …
  • 135,000 lines of C code with no comments
  • First Step was to re-design software with methodology to map into different hardware platforms with little effort!
  • System Specifications Goal
  • Develop guaranteed properties control algorithms for all power-train modes
  • Implement control strategies on embedded controllers “optimally” with respect to production cost, design time, reliability, safety
  • Manifold (continuous system) Engine sub-system Drive-line (continuous system with changing dynamics) Model of Power-train Simple? Throttle opening angle Manifold pressure Clutch Insertion/Release Gear change Vehicle Speed Spark timing Torque CTS CTS Engine and Drive-line Engine and Drive-line Single Cylinder Hybrid Model Hybrid Model vs Mean-Value Model
  • Mean-Value Model: accurate over a longer time window
  • regulation control problems
  • low performance transient problems
  • Hybrid Model: cycle accurate
  • transient control problems
  • stability of delay-sensitive control algorithms
  • high performance control algorithms
