Abstract

This paper presents a register transfer modeling scheme for array processor simulation. Its main goals are to verify the application specific design by real data computation, and to help fine tune the array architecture by precise timing analysis. The data flow graph of the design is translated into a register transfer language which is further combined with a hardware description module. An interactive simulator SISim v2.0 has been implemented to simulate the behavior of such a system. The results are compared with the expected values to verify the array processor design. The recorded timing information can help the designer to analyze the system and improve the performance and resource utilization.
