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.
This part illustrates the technique using examples addressing memory corruption, multicore systems and cache coherency with particular reference to watchpoints.
The second part of our series illustrates VP tools and techniques using the familiar example of Linux bring-up on an ARM-based SoC.
The first in a series of articles about using virtual prototyping techniques to achieve more effective debug.
SoC integration can be accelerated by using virtualization to make the benefits of emulation more accessible to both hardware and software engineers.
Mind how you go. The only truly free thing about open source tools is the download itself. There is, however, a 'third way', matching professional support to these often useful options.
Trying to balance your use of simulation and FPGA prototyping is tough. Acceleration used with Accelerated VIP offers simulation-like visibility and debug with near FPGA performance.
The Linux Trace Tookit next generation provides open source tracer technology that helps surmount debug and optimization challenges
The business case behind how virtual prototyping speeds development, improves hardware and software quality, and improves ROI.
Embedded hardware and software are experiencing exciting advances but free, open source technologies only go so far in connecting them. Help is on the way.
