The Multicore Optimization (MCO) technology in Synopsys Platform Architect provides an environment for early exploration and optimization of complex Multicore SoC (MP-SoC) platforms. It allows quantitative analysis of performance and power metrics to avoid SoC market failure due to underperforming or power hungry architectures.

In this white paper, we present a tool-assisted system-level performance analysis flow for interconnect and memory performance optimization using Synopsys Platform Architect. This environment allows the rapid creation of system-level performance models and the parallel simulation of many design configurations to investigate a wide range of architectural options. After a brief motivation and introduction of the flow we discuss the results of a design project, where Platform Architect has been used to optimize the performance of a multicore mobile platform SoC.
