Edaptive Computing Inc. the University of Cincinnati, and Duke University present a solution to the problems of (i) specifying the requirements and intended functions of mixed-technology electronic systems and Systems-On-a-Chip (SOC), and (ii) searching and retrieving Intellectual Property (IP) that completely or partially matches specified requirements for design reuse. Our Systems On a Chip Created using Extended Requirements language (SOCCER) program will apply (i) continuous domain extensions to a formal specification language for digital systems, (ii) a search and retrieval engine to search and retrieve mixed-technology IP, and (iv) a reduced order model database for microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), in a focused approach to develop an initial product for the Wireless market and a prototype for the MEMS domain. Our Phase II Objectives are to (1) Define and refine product requirements, (2) Fully define the specification language, (3) Develop a tool suite to search and retrieve IP, (4) Develop tool searchable IP databases, and (5) Obtain funds to complete commercialization of SOCCER. The Phase II products will be a demonstration of the prototype alpha beta SOCCER tool suites after 3, 12, and 21 months, respectively, and a Final Report for the Phase II effort.
