Top-Down Design Flow
The top-down methodology employed in SaberES Designer for synthesis automation of system integration provides a platform for design and automation verification. SaberES Designer is a database driven design flow where corporate-wide libraries provide predefined part sets for the following design types:
- Sub-System Design - Reusable schematics with logical connections that represent a function (External lights, braking, engine control, etc.)
- System Design - A vehicle projects Sub-System Designs are selected and used to build and synthesize the system design
- Wiring Design - Generated from the System Design and evolved by assigning physical objects such as wires, shells, inline connectors, etc.
- Bundle Design - Generates 2D production harness drawings
Having one electric system design database ensures system integration will be correct and robust for fast, accurate releases.
