Verification of hardware and software has become a key bottleneck for chip design. Hardware-assisted verification is removing that bottleneck.
Three key characteristics determine a verification platform's ability to add value to the design flow. But how they score within a project depend on how each is applied and at which point.
Different users within a design team will have varying needs for prototype capabilities. What type of prototype to pick is not always 100 per cent clear. Here are some pointers on how to make the choice.
Overcome the time and visibility limitations of simulation and of gate-level and RTL-based strategies to achieve full-chip analysis.
The value of the emulation market has almost doubled in the last four years as the technique becomes increasingly valuable to hardware/software co-verification.
Can emulation save energy and space, as well as time, during the verification process? Some argue so.
Richard Pugh reflects on efforts to cut through the tangle of cables and make emulation easier.
More than half of design companies claim to use ABV but many have yet to deploy full methodologies.
