Performance of AHB Bus Tracer with Dynamic Multiresolution and Lossless Real Time Compression

Assistant Professor, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering Avanthi Institute of Engineering and Technology, Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India.

In this paper we demonstrate the On-Chip bus SoC(system-on-chip) infrastructure that connects major hardware components. Monitoring the on-chip bus signals is crucial to the SoC debugging and performance analysis/optimization. The past two decades of SoC evolution have seen an exponential increase in complexity. Today’s devices have multiple processing units, CPUs, GPUs, DSPs, DMAs, third-party IP blocks and custom logic. As if the hardware is not complicated enough, there will of course be substantial amounts of sophisticated software code running on the SoC hardware/software integration, and testing are made very much harder. The commercial consequences of problems in the development flow are potentially dire: since the debugging / analysis needs are adaptable: some designers need all signals at cycle-level, while some others only care about the transactions. For the latter case, tracing all signals at cycle-level wastes a lot of trace memory. Thus, there must be a way to capture traces at different abstraction levels based on the specific debugging/analysis need.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
