The FPGA prototyping segment addresses mostly validation of smaller designs or a single IP while emulation is being used for large SoC designs. The FPGA prototyping being used mostly for SW development while emulation is being used for HW/SW verification and full system validation. Prototyping is great on speed but doesn’t offer as much internal visibility to debug problems on the hardware side as emulators do. This article describes how cadence software-driven verification drives the tight links between emulation and prototyping.
Find out how T&VS software driven verification drives tight links between emulation and prototyping and ensure highest productivity & product quality.
