Name:Luc Burgun
Designation:CEO and President, Emulation and Verification Engineering S.A, EVE.
Title:Emulation Prime Time in SoC Design Verification


Hardware emulation has been known for well over 20 years.  Originally and during the 90’s it was limited to performing functional verification of the largest designs of the time, namely, CPU and graphics designs.  But starting in early 2000, and gradually until the end of the decade, it moved outside the original niche and developed into a major verification tool for most electronic designs in all markets.

We anticipate that in the next decade it will become the mandatory verification/validation technology for any new embedded design.  This presentation discusses the evolution of hardware emulation, and it highlights features and benefits in its deployment for hardware verification and embedded software validation of System-on-Chips (SOC) designs.

The presentation will conclude with the description of few customer successes in the adoption of hardware emulation.
