What’s The Difference Between FPGA And Custom Silicon Emulators?
The fundamental difference between commercial FPGA-based emulators and emulators based on custom silicon lies in the core element that maps the design-under-test (DUT).
Four Technologies Converge In Hardware Emulation
Metaphorically speaking, a hardware emulation system sits on four technological pillars: the hardware, the compiler, the run-time environment, and the supporting verification intellectual properties, or VIPs.
Finding A Bug In The SoC Haystack
Finding critical bugs in the interaction of the embedded software running with the underling hardware is like finding the proverbial needle in a haystack. Finding problems quickly in the course of running billions and trillions of cycles of operation requires unique hardware debug tools and a rigorous tracing methodology.
Power Trumps Performance In Today’s SoC Designs
As the mainstream process node moves to 40 nm and as 28-nm, 20-nm, and 14-nm finFETs gain momentum, the largest designs are approaching billion-gate capacities. These trends make power-aware verification and switching activity tracking for power estimation extremely compute-intensive tasks that can only be addressed by the latest generations of emulators.
IP Models Need To Work Everywhere
Without IP reuse, today's consumer products would be impossible. But IP vendors are complicating things with "black-box" models that don't run on all verification environments. EVE's Lauro Rizzatti proposes a solution.
Social Media And Streaming Video Give EDA Cause For Optimism
Social media begets traffic, traffic begets bandwidth, and bandwidth, or the lack thereof, begets consternation. EVE's Lauro Rizzatti connects the dots between Facebook, EDA, and a new generation of network infrastructure.
Multicore SoCs Make Emulation Mandatory
In his latest "Verification Veritas" column, EVE's Lauro Rizzatti explores the intersection of multicore-SoC design and emulation.
Is An Emulation Hockey Stick Coming?
SoCs are no longer part of the system; they are the system. The explosion in SoC operating modes points toward a verification crunch. Emulation is a technology whose time in the spotlight may have finally arrived. EVE's Lauro Rizzatti explains why.
Get Faster Verification For Less Power
Concern for how long verification takes is universal, but have you given thought to how much power it consumes? EVE's Lauro Rizzatti makes the case for emulation as the lowest-power alternative.
Missing Your Schedule Can Cost You Plenty—Even Billions
The price of fixing bugs is directly related to how thoroughly they're rooted out and how long that takes to accomplish. EVE's Lauro Rizzatti takes you through some of the math and methodology options for saving big bucks on respins.
Master Of Many Trades: Designing An Emulator Calls On Diverse Skills
Looking for a fully rounded EDA-user experience? Try designing an emulation system! EVE's Lauro Rizzatti explains how such a design endeavor calls for mastering of myriad facets of design at an extremely high level.
The Verification Checklist
There are a lot of things to remember in the process of design verification. In his maiden column as a Contributing Expert columnist, EVE's Lauro Rizzatti outlines a checklist that can help cross those Ts and dot those Is.
A Positive Report from EDSFair
Lauro Rizzatti of EVE reports from EDS Fair in Japan; evidence suggests that designers are gravitating toward emulator-based co-verification of hardware and software. This trend is driven by the increasing embedded software content in SoC designs.
