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.
September 7, 2015
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.

This article introduces hybrid emulation, a combination of emulation and virtual prototypes, and its application to tasks such as architecture validation, early software development and software-driven verification.
July 22, 2014
We look at how best to leverage both software debug tools and emulators, the limitations to traditional techniques, and the drive toward offline debug.

While some HW/SW co-design and verification techniques are in place, a power analysis methodology is only just emerging
May 23, 2013
The growing verification challenge, and how to address it by coordinating multiple debug strategies.
April 4, 2013
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.
May 28, 2012
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.

Building a prototype SoC in one or a set of FPGAs can aid field trials, software development and hardware/software integration. But it's not easy, so the decision to go ahead needs careful consideration.
