Hardware Emulation for Software Validation (Part 1): Physical and Virtual Probes (.PDF Download)

Feb. 3, 2017

Hardware emulation continues to prove itself as a handy tool for hardware/software co-verification and testing the integration of hardware and software. Booting an operating system and executing software applications takes billions of verification cycles—a task that defeats traditional software-based analysis tools. Only hardware-based verification engines provide the throughput necessary to meet the challenge...
