1 Esterel Technologies © 2006 — - DASC meeting, July 25thwww.esterel-technologies.com 1 1 Esterel v7 IEEE / DASC Standardization Proposal Gérard Berry Chief Scientist Esterel Technologies Member, Académie des sciences Member, Académie des technologies Member, Academia Europaea

2 Esterel Technologies © 2006 — - DASC meeting, July 25thwww.esterel-technologies.com 2 2 Esterel Technologies - Industries Served SCADE Drive™ Safety-critical automotive embedded software code generator certified by TUV - IEC standard Esterel Studio ™ Specification-to-RTL of hardware IP designs rigorous & unambiguous executable specifications automatically-generated efficient RTL / C code SCADE Suite™ De-facto Standard for Safety-critical avionics embedded software DO-178B Level A certified systems automatically-generated C code

3 Esterel Technologies © 2006 — - DASC meeting, July 25thwww.esterel-technologies.com 3 3 What is Esterel v7? A formal synchronous IP specification language Based on previous public Esterel v5 research language (INRIA, Columbia, France Telecom, IIT Mumbai, etc.) With enhanced complex control description statements With new powerful hardware datapath expressions With strong formal semantics and assertion-based verification Fully synthesizable to hardware (HDL) or software (C, C++) Industrialized by Esterel Technologies since 2001 Specified within the Esterel Consortium semiconductor companies + academics

4 Esterel Technologies © 2006 — - DASC meeting, July 25thwww.esterel-technologies.com 4 4  In 2001 Esterel Technologies formed a consortium of leading Semiconductor companies  Early adopters of Esterel Studio™  Strategic involvement  Collaborative specification of the requirements  Strong influence on roadmap  Working with Esterel Technologies for IEEE standardization of the Esterel language  And more recently… Esterel Consortium

5 Esterel Technologies © 2006 — - DASC meeting, July 25thwww.esterel-technologies.com 5 5 What Esterel v7 is not Another flavor of classical HDLs HDL = structural, Esterel v7 = behavioral built-in sofware-like sequential sequencing dedicated statements for complex temporal control exact arithmetic for automatic datapath sizing Another flavor of C built-in hardware-like concurrency dedicated statements for complex temporal control A full SoC system-level specification language not an alternative to SystemC but an excellent IP / transactor design tool for SystemC formal specification and verification, synthesis to RTL + SystemC (system-level formal specification and verification is yet a dream)
