Paper Abstract

In the past, a common way to develop systems was to build prototypes and test these in the laboratory until all bugs were fixed. The final system was developed and released for production in at least another one additional design iteration. This way is no longer feasible in modern systems. It is too time consuming and for some systems not possible at all. The complex behavior of these systems must be simulated and alternatives must be proved to find the best solution to comply with the need of the market. This paper is showing, how LITEF was designing as ASIC for an (mu) FORS system. Simulation proved the correctness of the specification for this ASIC and the functionality of the complete system. The simulation of different design tools had to be interfaced to achieve the result. No prototype was built to prove correctness of the system idea.
