Intel® CoFluent™ Studio for timed-behavioral modeling (TBM) bridges the gap between specifications and implementation. It allows designers to model and simulate the behavior and time properties of electronic systems' applications and prepare efficiently for implementation.
At this stage, designers think in terms of functions and have no preconceived ideas about hardware or software implementation. However, functions are organized in a way that the resulting functional architecture is fully compatible with implementation-level abstractions, for all dimensions (structural, communications, and behavioral).
In addition, time is an essential design factor: it's used to organize the application or concurrent process-timed (CPT) model as the highest degree of parallelism in the system's behavior is sought.
Once a timed-behavioral model is obtained and verified, designers may continue developing their system either with their own process or with further system architecting capabilities offered by Intel CoFluent Studio.
Intel CoFluent Studio can be used also as graphical SystemC modeling front-end to generate automatically in transaction-level modeling (TLM) SystemC "application-like" test cases (for example, intelligent traffic generator) for SoC-platform architecture models.
Models and simulations measure the impact of architecture decisions before hardware is available.

Intel CoFluent Studio for system architecting (SA) goes beyond platform-level electronic-system level (ESL) design tools by allowing predictive application-driven system architecting at a high abstraction level from partial hardware and software.
