The configurability of processor IP such as Synopsys' ARC HS family gives designers the option to optimise for power, performance or a combination of both.
Using a physically aware flow to ensure that fixing one ECO doesn't introduce another during sign off.
An in-depth look at the role of FPGA-based prototyping and the validation use cases it offers when integrating complex blocks.
Catching x-propagation issues at RTL saves time and reduces uncertainty in gate-level verification
Advanced tools are being applied to established nodes to produce advanced designs for volume markets.
The fourth installment discusses the extra levels of debug capability available when using virtual prototypes through the example of an ARM big.LITTLE-based embedded system.
Advanced design isn’t restricted to emerging process nodes any more. Designers are using the latest tools to produce advanced designs on established nodes.
This part illustrates the technique using examples addressing memory corruption, multicore systems and cache coherency with particular reference to watchpoints.
The HAPS prototyping system can help designers integrate IP into SoCs more quickly.
Consistency is vital to IP integration strategies that rely on developing an SoC using a hierarchy of FPGA-based prototypes.
