Dennis Brophy As DVCon expands, we at Mentor Graphics have grown our sponsored sessions as well.  Would you expect less? In DVCon’s recent past, it was a tradition for the North American SystemC User Group (NASCUG) to sponsor a day of activity before the official start of the conference.  When OSCI merged with Accellera, the day before the official conference start grew to become Accellera Day with a broader set … Read More

Ricardo Anguiano Extended hardware verification using software test cases increases design confidence by exercising those hardware designs with real-world software test cases. In the video above, Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition is used in conjunction with a Veloce emulator and a custom ARM Cortex-M3 hardware design to develop and debug a bare metal application which takes advantage of a custom hardware accelerator. … Read More

Harry Foster We are truly living in the age of SoC design, where 78 percent of all designs today contain one or more embedded processors.  In fact, 56 percent of all designs contain two or more embedded processors, which brings a whole new level of verification challenges—requiring unique solutions. A great example of this is STMicroelectronics who recently shared their experience and solution in addressing verification … Read More

Mark Olen You don’t need a graphic like the one below to know that multi-core SoC designs are here to stay.  This one happens to be based on ARM’s AMBA 4 ACE architecture which is particularly effective for mobile design applications, offering an optimized mix of high performance processing and low power consumption.  But with software’s increasing role in overall design functionality, verification engineers … Read More

Ricardo Anguiano Pre-Silicon Software Development with Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition I recently got a crash course in hardware/software design workflows. While my software background is strong, my hardware design knowledge is very light. Any thoughts I have on Karnaugh maps or rising edge flip-flops are quite dusty. Even so, I clearly understood the problems solved by the new Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition, … Read More

Kamran Shah I recently posted about using Virtual Prototypes pre-silicon with the recently introduced Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition and mentioned that the same native software development approach can be used when RTL is available on emulators.  This enables embedded software and hardware designers to exercise a HW design using actual SW, and a full stack which includes firmware, drivers, the operating system … Read More

Kamran Shah Mentor very recently introduced  a product that brings together the so far separate worlds of EDA or SoC design from embedded software with the new Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition. There is now a way pre-silicon to make use of native software development, for example running a complete Linux stack. This enables a number of things pre-silicon including: Validation of HW/SW SoC interfaces Integration … Read More

Kamran Shah Our second day at Embedded World is no less busy than the first.  In addition to a number of demos at the Expo (Hall 5, Booth 324) we are presenting a number of sessions as well. We have three different presenters on this second day and the sessions really do cover a lot of different topics: Walter Sabia has a session “Virtual Prototyping – Development of multi-discipline Systems from Concept … Read More

Mark Olen A system-level verification engineer once told me that his company consumes over 50% of its emulation capacity debugging failures. According to him there was just no way around consuming emulators while debugging their SoC design emulation runs. In fact when failures occur during emulation, verification engineers often turn to live debugging with JTAG interfaces to the Design Under Test. This enables … Read More

Verification Techniques & Technologies Adoption Trends This blog is a continuation of a series of blogs, which present the highlights from the 2010 Wilson Research Group Functional Verification Study (for a background on the study, click here). In my previous blog (Part 8 click here), I focused on some of the 2010 Wilson Research Group findings related to design and verification language trends.
