The GRAphics AcceLerator (GRAAL) design-exploration framework is an open system that offers a coherent development methodology for hardware/software cosimulation and codesign of embedded 3D graphics accelerators. GRAAL incorporates tools to help visually debug graphics algorithms implemented in hardware and to estimate performance in terms of throughput, power consumption, and area.
hardware/software codesign, 3D graphics architectures, tile-based rendering
