Is Hybrid simulation the panacea for Verification problems?

High simulation times have for long been a bottleneck in functional verification.  Over the years, different techniques have evolved to counter this problem some of which incorporate expensive hardware to replicate Silicon run times. One of the innovative solutions to have emerged is Hybrid Simulation – a technique to simulate components at different levels of [...]
