FPGAs are an extremely flexible platform for the verification of SoC designs, at all levels of the design, and at all stages of the project.

As SoC designs have grown in size and complexity, the need for simulation acceleration and FPGA-based prototypes has kept pace only by employing the very largest and most advanced FPGA technologies.

Alongside this growth, advances in transactors and verification environments, such as UVM, have made it not only possible, but also necessary, to fully integrate simulation and FPGA hardware. This need for scale and scalability has led us from FPGAs being used mainly for prototyping to this new era of FPGA-based verification.
