Riassunto analitico
Electronic systems in the automotive market are getting more and more pervasive and complex. Many target applications are spreading in this field: sensor conditioning devices are only examples of driving applications.<br>Time-to-market and specification requirements are harder to meet than in the past; for these reasons it is important to explore new design strategies.<br>Currently the design strategy of sensor conditioning units is often the standard ASIC flow. However, the design effort can be reduced by automatic or platform-aided design strategies and by using software-based solutions.<br>This work presents SensASIP platform. It is a design-aiding platform targeting a microprocessor architecture enhanced by dedicated instructions for carrying out signal processing tasks.<br>SensASIP allows a seamless design flow from MATLAB-based algorithm definition and Instruction Set design and simulation, down to the processor macrocell HDL description and implementation in CMOS technology.<br>Two automotive sensor conditioning examples are presented to show the flexibility of SensASIP platform to meet application specific requirements.<br>Special focus is put on its reduced design-effort and increased flexibility with respect to standard ASIC design approach; on its low complexity overhead with respect to other state-of-art software-based solutions.
