Paper Abstract

Mixed-resolution modeling methods are used for developing large complex system models from subsystem models, where each subsystem model may be described at varying levels of detail and complexity. The usefulness of creating mixed- resolution system models is that existing validated or legacy component models can be integrated into the overall system models, regardless of the level of detail. This process eliminates the need for creating or validating additional models of a system at a single specific level of detail. Mixed-resolution modeling methods are being utilized in the development of mission, campaign and theater level models. However, mixed resolution modeling techniques are being successfully employed at lower levels of the modeling spectrum, particularly in the area of hardware/software design. This paper presents mixed resolution-modeling techniques as they apply to backplane based computing systems. The mixed-resolution modeling techniques presented are used to create interface wrappers that handle information and timing differences between dataflow and functional modeling paradigms. The solutions required to resolve these information and timing differences in the engineering domain are similar to the problems found at the theater, campaign, and mission levels.
