GPU design teams use hardware emulation so that they work on tasks, such as driver development. GPU emulation environment enables software to run at high speed by interacting with the RTL design in the emulator, but has challenges such as reliability, scalability and flexibility. This article from Techdesign Forum outlines how AMD coupled a virtual PC and transaction-based emulation to accelerate the verification of its latest GPU to ensure the reliability, scalability and flexibility of the emulation environment.
