Making Hardware/Software Co-Verification Easier for ARM Cortex™-A Series Processor-based Designs



ARM is leading the industry in multi-core design with its Cortex™-A series applications processors including both its high-performance ARM Cortex-A15 and its high-efficiency ARM Cortex-A7. Verifying and manually debugging single core processor designs has been challenging enough. Trying to manually debug multi-core designs is nearly impossible. This session will cover how Questa Codelink automates the debugging process for multi-core designs based on the ARM Cortex-A series processors. A demo of debugging a multi-core Cortex-A15 design will conclude the session.

What You Will Learn

  • Interactively debug HW/SW simulation
  • Enable offline debugging of HW/SW emulation
  • Maintain accurate multi-core synchronization of HW and SW views
  • Reduce the time to isolate bugs from weeks to hours

Who Should View

  • Design engineers and manager responsible for designing and verifying ARM Cortex based SoCs
