Not All Emulators Are Created Equal

For a verification technology that wasn’t well known outside of the largest semiconductor designs until a decade ago, hardware-emulation adoption has grown considerably over the past few years. This article describes why this sudden increase in hardware-emulation deployment within the design-verification flow and outlines why speed, throughput, and latency are the key parameters in determining [...]

What Does the Future Hold in Hardware Emulation

Decades after its introduction, hardware emulation now is the preferred choice for design debugging. It satisfies all the verification objectives of a SoC design regardless of its type and application, from hardware verification and hardware/software integration to embedded software and system validation, including post-silicon validation. Verification Consultant, Lauro Rizzatti, summarizes in this article on what [...]

Moving DFT into chip design with hardware emulation

Design for Testability (DFT) consists of IC design techniques that add testability features to a hardware product design. The added features make it easier to develop and apply manufacturing tests to the designed hardware. Verification Consultant, Lauro Rizzatti, describes how hardware emulation provides enough verification power to move DFT into the chip design thus [...]
