FPGA-based prototyping 2: Understand the real cost

Part two of our series on FPGA-based prototyping looks at two critical factors to address before a project begins: budgeting and high-level implementation.

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.

FPGA-based prototyping 1: What’s all this buzz about?

This multi-part series addresses various aspects of FPGA-based prototyping. Future installments will address budgeting and implementation, but we start by looking at why the technique is generating so much interest.

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.

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?
