Emulators have come a long way since their first introduction nearly three decades ago.
Accelerating software testing is vital to speeding up embedded system development, especially for Android and Linux systems running on ARM-based hardware. Virtual prototyping strategies, including the use of VDKs, can help.
How to accelerate many aspects of software testing by using virtual prototypes to stand in for target hardware from early in the development cycle.
A look at using end-to-end prototyping to ease architecture development, hardware/software integration, and system validation in SoC designs
More protocols, multibillion-gate designs, minimized power, burgeoning software and, for networking, hundreds of switch and router ports emphasize the need for scalable, virtualized emulation.
Enabling greater reliability, scalability and flexibility of GPU emulation at AMD using a hybrid virtual-machine based approach
How AMD coupled a virtual PC and transaction-based emulation to accelerate the verification of its latest GPU
Part three of our series looks at the choices you face as you decide whether to build or buy a board.
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.
Embedded systems developers are turning to agile techniques and continuous integration. To make these processes possible, you need an environment that supports easy access to virtual prototypes throughout the life cycle.
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.
