An in-circuit emulator (ICE) is a hardware interface that allows a programmer to change or debug the software in an embedded system. However, debugging a chip design in ICE mode is cumbersome. That’s due to lack of deterministic, predictable behavior of the physical target system, which compromises and prolongs the finding of a bug.
This article from Electronic Design outlines how deterministic ICE takes the randomness out of in-circuit emulation (ICE) that dramatically shortens the time to find and fix bugs.
Find out how T&VS hardware emulation services allow verifying the robustness of a design and helps optimize the design for improved performance.
