Dr. Tobias Jeske works as an IT consultant at itemis AG in Hamburg and is part of the Xtext team. He is interested in model-driven software development and in helping customers solve their problems. In his spare time, he creates a new and elegant hardware description language, which is 100 percent compatible with VHDL.
Hardware/software co-design can be challenging. In this blog article, I am going to explain how model-driven development using domain-specific languages (DSLs) can reduce time to market and improve product quality in heterogeneous hardware/software environments.
