FPGAs speed up verification

The next generation of prototyping based on FPGAs could solve the concurrent verification conundrum, writes Juergen Jaeger. With ever-increasing embedded software content in complex system‑on‑chip (SoC) devices, it has become crucial to develop and to verify software and hardware concurrently, and as early as possible in the design cycle. FPGA-based prototyping plays an increasingly important ...
