Axilica and Softeam, through its Modeliosoft division, have signed a collaboration agreement focused on delivering coherent solutions for customers requiring a UML® to hardware and hardware-software co-design methodology.
This collaboration agreement is an extension to the successful relationship already in place between both companies within the ENOSYS project, part of the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme for funding and encouraging leading edge research and technological development.  The objectives of the ENOSYS project are to specify and develop a tool flow for designing and implementing embedded systems using the seamless integration of high-level system specifications, software code generation, hardware synthesis and design space exploration.
This agreement enables the commercial exploitation of the technical innovations implemented in ENOSYS for the modelling and synthesis of embedded systems. The Softteam’s Modelio UML modelling tool complemented by Axilica’s FalconML behavioural synthesis tool provide a complete design flow from UML models to RTL (for hardware only design) or RTL and C/C++ (for hardware-software co-design).
The collaboration between Modeliosoft and Axilica will provide solutions to companies developing complex embedded systems, in key market segments such as telecommunications and military aerospace, where the adopting of model-driven methodologies results in reduced time-to-market and product development costs.
