Ricardo Anguiano Software development on early stage custom hardware platforms is not for mere mortals. The hardware isn’t finished yet, so the software team must wait for prototype boards to arrive. Then there’s the build, flash, test and debug cycle. Traditional, JTAG and printf-style debugging are hard enough but when application performance must be improved, there’s when the real wizardry takes … Read More

Ricardo Anguiano Imagine this scenario: Your custom hardware design is still being worked out by your hardware team. Early stage, pre-silicon design models are running in simulation. The software team has started their work using this hardware simulation and they’ve got Linux running on the simulated target and they are now debugging kernel, driver and application code. The software team helps exercise the … 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
