Embedded Software Verification Issues Grow

Embedded software is becoming more critical in managing the power and performance of complex designs, but so far there is no consensus about the best way to approach it and that’s creating problems.

This article from Semiengineering highlights the approach to overcome the challenges of verifying the embedded software and explores the comprehensive coverage of verification and debugging techniques for embedded software, which is used in safety critical applications.

Software Verification for Low Power, Safety Critical Systems

The goal of the SAFEPOWER project (an EU Horizon 2020 programme) is to enable the development of low power mixed-criticality systems through the provision of a reference architecture, platforms and tools to facilitate the development, testing, and validation of these kinds of systems according to the market needs.

Simon Davidmann of Imperas Software, presented an overview of SAFEPOWER – Xilinx Zynq 7000 device, hypervisor, OS, applications and then focused on the software architecture which help address safety critical aspects of the platform, and outlined about the software simulation tools (for example for power estimation and management) and software verification at the DVClub Europe Conference which took place on 29th November 2016.

Why Gate-Level Simulation is increasing

This article from Cadence explains the results of a survey involving verification engineers from 7 major Cadence customers located in North America, Japan, India and Europe.  The survey highlighted that process nodes mostly ranged from 28nm to 45nm and cited the top reasons for running gate-level simulation. A separate question about DFT simulation revealed that about half of respondents use this technique to verify scan chains.
