RTL sign-off strategies ease SoC design and IP integration by enabling early analysis and optimization of CDC, power, X propagation, timing, and resetability issues.
Many problems arise during the IP-to-SoC phase of FPGA-based prototyping due to the mix-and-match nature of the prototypes not the actual designs.
Debug of logic and testbench debug makes up 35% of chip design, and is growing as power-management and hardware/software issues become part of the task.
Mentor's Stephen Pateras explains how the proposed IJTAG standard speeds IP test by replacing time-consuming custom and ad hoc methodologies.
