SoC integration can be accelerated by using virtualization to make the benefits of emulation more accessible to both hardware and software engineers.
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.
The Linux Trace Tookit next generation provides open source tracer technology that helps surmount debug and optimization challenges
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.
Root-cause analysis of detected errors is a key design step. Debugging can take more than half of the verification effort. Vennsa’s OnPoint automated debug technology has been integrated with Springsoft’s Verdi visualization platform to reduce cost and uncertainty.
