Semiconductor industry is growing with tremendous pace. To meet the time-to-market target, there is always a need to bring parallelism to the product development cycle. This article proposes a flow which illustrates how to develop and test software early in the development phase along with design-verification cycle and highlights the benefits of the flow which will not only reduce the development cycle but also improve the quality of product. Additionally, this article also describes how QEMU(Quick Emulator) based virtual platform has been integrated with SystemVerilog based RTL simulation environment.
Find out how T&VS Hardware Emulation services allow verifying the robustness of a design and helps optimize the design for improved performance.
