Improve SoC Design Efficiency with Veloce proFPGA's FPGA Prototyping System

Reading time: 7 minutes
When first silicon arrives, the software team should be ready with a stable driver, operating system (OS) and application code–but developed on what? Application-level code can be developed on general-purpose systems or in the cloud, using stubs to represent the SoC and its peripherals. Software unit testing–up to the level of booting the OS–can be done conveniently on a hardware emulation system.

Overcoming SoC Verification Challenges with FPGA Prototyping

But then there are the tricky parts

Like integrating the hardware with the software or seeking root cause on obscure or seemingly nonrecurring bugs. What about the daily grind of software and IP regression testing? These tasks require an accurate hardware model, high speed, and visibility/control offered by emulation platforms. They may occur at multiple sites and require a scalable and portable platform.
