Skeet shooting and design debug

In-circuit emulation is attractive but brings with it debug-visibility issues. There are ways to restructure the environment to make bug hunting much more deterministic.

Why emulation performance doesn’t matter (on its own)

Emulation performance is a key metric in verification. But it is far from being the only consideration. How long it takes to get a design onto a verification platform and aspects such as debug are as important. These factors will control how verification platforms are deployed during a project's life cycle.

Putting emulation on the map

Emulation is now served by all three leading vendors and is a hot topic for discussion among engineers. The major verification conferences need to follow suit.

Acceleration homes in on power issues

Emulation and simulation acceleration technologies provide the means to more efficiently detect power issues before tapeout – and find the worst-case modes that need to be fixed.

The evolution of software debug using hardware emulation

The evolution of software debug using hardware emulators

We look at how best to leverage both software debug tools and emulators, the limitations to traditional techniques, and the drive toward offline debug.

Early tape-out: smart verification or expensive mistake?

Is it worth trying to iron out all the bugs in an SoC before taping out, or should design teams anticipating a re-spin go to silicon earlier and use the chips that come back as verification accelerators?
