System Design

horizontal rule

This phase is where the system engineer determines how he or she can meet the requirements defined in the Functional Specification.  A top-down approach is used to partition the design.   All critical architectural concerns need to be highlighted at this phase.   Some of these concerns must be verified prior to proceeding.  We at Microprocessor Designs pride ourselves on our ability to traverse down to the details without becoming mired there during System Design.  Once these details, or 'primitives' as we refer to them, are verified we feel comfortable utilizing them in your product.   The product/project is then partitioned into smaller, more manageable problems. 

This involves:

bulletSplitting a design into hardware, software (PC/Host computer) and firmware responsibilities
bulletSelecting communications approaches
bulletDefining data flow
bulletSelecting development/test approaches

Deliverables of the System Design include:

bulletSystem Design Document
bulletInterface Control Documents (ICDs) for Externally Interconnected Assemblies
bulletDevelopment Schedule
