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.
The second part of our series illustrates VP tools and techniques using the familiar example of Linux bring-up on an ARM-based SoC.
Better delay estimation of sub-32nm interconnects, in which resistivity varies up to 100x between layers, helps Cavium improve overall performance and get ready for even denser processes
A case study describing validation of the integration of USB3.0 and USB2.0 interface IP that illustrates broader challenges FPGA-based prototyping presents.
How the HPC company used Synopsys' Lynx Design System to standardise its flow and simplify migration to the next node.
Power intent, signal isolation and level shifting can all be controlled in a UPF-based multi-voltage IC design through careful coding.
