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.
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.
This part illustrates the technique using examples addressing memory corruption, multicore systems and cache coherency with particular reference to watchpoints.
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.
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.
The first in a series of articles about using virtual prototyping techniques to achieve more effective debug.
The growing verification challenge, and how to address it by coordinating multiple debug strategies.
SoC integration can be accelerated by using virtualization to make the benefits of emulation more accessible to both hardware and software engineers.
Now companies in any tier can use development kits as a platform to speed development, bridge the hardware-software divide and build out ecosystems quickly.
