Meeting the challenge of concurrent RTL and workload verification and validation

RTL design emulation and large-scale FPGA-based prototyping are enabling tools for SoC, software, and system verification and validation. Emulation, with its ease of compiling RTL into an executable model and its full signal observability, is an indispensable tool for RTL design and verification. FPGA-based large-scale prototyping, that achieves greater execution speed in exchange for more limited flexibility and observability, is vital for software teams that must validate code against the RTL design. Together they are an incredible force for full-system verification and validation.
