The Optimal SoC Build Flow
Whether the result is a failed compile, passing simulation, or anything in between, the sooner you get that result, the sooner you get to the next step and closer you get to your ultimate objective: passing silicon. Questa has a few different options for optimizing build flows depending on the application. This paper describes a few of those options, starting with a simple lump sum build and working through simulation options that enable an optimal SoC build flow.
Questa users have a lot of flexibility when it comes to finding the build flow that’s right for them. Whether you’re verifying a small sub-system as a one-person team or an entire SoC with a much larger team, the combination of compiled library partitioning, PDUs, parallelism and elaboration flow are the tools you need for an optimal build flow and reduced SoC build times.
