SoC designs are becoming more and more complex, and optimising interfaces around the processor has become a tedious design step. To assist design groups, processor vendors are now beginning to supply configurable designs (core platforms) that include memory and many common peripherals optimised for use with the processor core, and some standard connection ports onto which additional user designed logic can be quickly added.

Using Platform Express, designers can browse through a library of available processors, memories and peripherals and drag and drop selected items into a graphical editor. Platform Express provides a graphical user interface that enables users to create systems as block diagrams. Platform Express automatically creates the necessary connections between components, depending on a selection of standard buses, including AMBA and VCl. Platform Express includes a memory map display that automatically displays utilisation of address space.

The Platform-Based Design (PBD) methodology supported with Platform Express not only generates complete hardware and software SoC designs, but also generates custom execution environments required to verify designs. Each set of verification tools customised for a particular design is called an execution environment. Most design groups require multiple execution environments to complete the verification of a design's hardware and software. Each environment will support a different combination of tools and verification targets, and offers different levels of accuracy and performance.

Once graphical entry is complete, Platform Express automatically generates the design, as well as the software to run on the design and a test bench to drive it. Platform Express then invokes verification tools, transparently generating and executing scripts that would be time-consuming to prepare manually. Platform Express also automatically generates diagnostic code for each peripheral and memory component in the design.

Methode Electronics, Inc. said it has acquired the automotive safety business of American Components, Inc.(ACI). Terms of the transaction weren't disclosed.

Included in this asset purchase are the manufacturing operations and patented intellectual property for a sensor pad manufactured by ACI for use by automotive suppliers in occupant detection systems.

Methode said the sensor pad is a critical component of an advanced airbag system which vehicle makers must implement to meet U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208 announced in May 2000. The standard requires automakers to provide a system to minimize injuries to occupants, especially infants and children, caused by airbag deployment.

Beginning in 2004, 35% of each manufacturer's fleet sold in the United States must be equipped with advanced airbag systems that comply with the new standard. The number increases to nearly 100% by 2006, Methode said.

The systems determine whether to suppress or allow front passenger airbag deployment based on the passenger's weight, or is designed to suppress the system entirely if the seat is empty.

Five types of transceiver and two repeater models provide an assortment to suit GEMs varying range and network configurations. Manufacturers can choose short-range, low power-consumption versions for battery-powered or piconet applications, and higher power radios coupled with repeaters for miles of range. All L X transceivers have identical dimensions, connectors and software requirements, and so modules are interchangeable for changing design needs.

Lucent Technologies has met with work councils and workers representatives at its European sites to discuss the reshaping of the company's operations

The talks covered the sale or closure of some plants as well as cuts in workforce numbers.

A spokesman for Lucent said that the implementation of a new business model” will result in job losses. There will be redundancies – the level is being discussed.”

Lucent is satisfying its statutory obligations by meeting with staff representatives. The talks covered the state of the market and all aspects of our business plan,” said the spokesman.
