ABSTRACT
The article discusses the increasing need for electronic system-level (ESL) tools which are used for system-level design. Electronic design automation (EDA) analysts Gary Smith states that the shortage of ESL is a critical problem because the EDA, which are used by most designers, are only hardware eccentric and are not designed to handle hardware/software partitioning. It was indicated that ESL can work in two levels which include the behavioral and the architectural levels. However, Smith stated that power and programmability are still considered as the two main problems that encumbered ESL design.
