Avant Technology Inc. is a professional EDA tool & Silicon IP distributor in Asia.
SpaceStudio is an ESL (electronic system level) tool that can help system architects and engineers to accelerate the design and rapidly evaluate both hardware and software options through the hw/sw co-design and partitioning process.
While most competitors focus on ESL for hardware design only, SpaceStudio also supports software design.
The design architecture is implemented in parallel on both hardware and software.
The software apps running on standard OSes like VxWorks and Micrium’s Micro-C.
Its technology enables transformation of code between hardware and software implementation easily by drag & drop in the GUI editor.
The performance analysis is supported by non-intrusive system monitoring in both hardware and software domains.
Generating the hardware and software together this way increases quality as they will integrate well in the future.

Automated Support of Hardware/Software Partitioning Enables Rapid Co-design of Complex SoC Embedded Systems
Space Codesign Systems, Inc. VP Technical Marketing and General Manager
Electronic gadgets like smartphones, GPS and tablets have quickly become a part of our lives and it’s hard to imagine living without them! But take a moment to consider that these devices are complex systems of hardware and software that must work well together – an ever-growing challenge to the electronics firms who create them. Short product life cycles put severe limits on development time and cost, so these companies are hitting the wall on productivity.
Also, sudden marketplace changes can force quick strategic shifts. For example, just three years ago, netbooks were the wave of the future; then tablets came along!
Today, Space Codesign presents our solution. SpaceStudio is an advanced software tool suite for designing embedded systems that works at a higher level called ESL, or electronic system level. Using SpaceStudio to create their designs, engineers can rapidly evaluate hardware and software options, at the same time, in parallel, and achieve up to 30% reduction in product development time with improved quality. New technology provides automated support in hardware/software partitioning, retargeting the same model for hardware or software implementation without recoding!
