Is a Unified Methodology for System-Level Design Possible?
July-August 2008 (vol. 25 no. 4)
pp. 346-357
Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli, University of California, Berkeley
This article describes the principles of the design of embedded electronic systems from the perspective of the entire system. By not restricting this perspective to the electrical domain, a more disciplined, unified methodology can lead to more efficient system-level design. In a world where myriad wirelessly interconnected appliances are going to impact our everyday lives and where technology advances are posing fundamental problems at the nanodevice level, the most important challenge will be ensuring safe, secure, and effective design. A unified methodology is an essential ingredient for a successful use of technology in society.
Index Terms:
