Almost 21 months ago, I announced here an applied research project to explore the feasibility of using the concepts of architectural description languages (ADLs) to provide automated assistance of high-level electronics design. This was supposed to take around 12 months, but it took quite a bit longer than expected. Thankfully, I wrapped it up by last February. You can read my draft paper here, and peruse and play with the source code here. A finished version of the Eclipse-based visual editor can be found here.
Any and all comments and feedback on this are warmly welcomed!
Summer is in full blow in the northern hemisphere, and, I think, particularly so in the Caribbean. Family commitments involving plenty of food and the beach, among less glamorous stuff, have kept me silent over here for almost two months now. This is just a short note to let you all know that I’ve been awarded a research grant from INTEC to work on architecture description languages (ADLs) as tools to assist high-level electronics design. Read on for some details.
