It is important to develop and follow a disciplined and optimized design flow when implementing a rapid system prototyping effort. Effective design flow optimization requires addressing the trade-offs between additional project risk and associated schedule reduction. This balance is likely to vary between projects. In order to efficiently implement a project with an optimized design flow system, engineering decisions become even more important since these key decisions affect every subsequent design phase. It is important to understand the design phases, their order, their relationships, and the decisions that must be made in each of these phases. This book attempts to address these topics. Figure 1.1 presents the order ...
