Key Features
Bug Report
CAP Lab.


PeaCE 1.1 was released in DAC University Booth on July. 2006.

PeaCE (Ptolemy extension as Codesign Environment) is a codesign environment for rapid development of heterogeneous digital systems targetting from system-on-chip (SOC) design to distributed heterogeneous system design. The work is conducted in the CAP (Codesign and Parallel processing) Lab. of Seoul National University, Korea. The project is directed by Prof. Soonhoi Ha.

PeaCE is an open source research tool written in C++ (high performance kernel) and Java (for platform independent GUI). It provides the design framework common to all system level design activities: specification, cosimulation, design space exploration, synthesis of SW, HW and their interface. It is a reconfigurable framework so that third party design tools can be easily integrated. Currently we have tested seamless interface with Seamless CVE cosimulation tool.

Jul. 2006: PeaCE 1.1 released.
Jun. 2005: PeaCE 1.0.1 released.
Jun. 2005: PeaCE 1.0 released in DAC University Booth: full codesign flow with a divx player example.
Nov. 25, 2004: PeaCE 1.0 (Beta) released
Jun. 2004: demonstrated in DAC University Booth: without cosimulation and cosynthesis.
