How emulation’s SoC and SoS advantages begin with transaction-based co-modeling

System design companies are increasingly turning to emulators as the only verification platform with the capacity and performance to validate that their system-on-chip (SoC) and system-of-systems (SoS) designs function as intended. On an emulator, this complex SoC and SoS verification happens with the help of an advanced capability called transaction-based co-modeling. This article from Tech [...]
