Ease Debug and Control of Network Software Using Virtual Prototypes to Do Full System Simulation
The software communication overhead in networking applications continues to grow. This makes it imperative to bring up the software as early as possible in the context of a full system to both reduce the overall development and debug cycle and to make sure that the setup can be tested in a realistic setting. In this webinar we will show how you can use a virtual prototype with a DesignWare Gigabit Ethernet model and ARM Cortex-A processor models to simulate a network application like e.g. a server farm. We will show how the virtual prototyping methodology not only enables software development before hardware availability, but also helps reduce the actual development and debug cycle. We will go on to show how virtual prototypes allow software developers to keep an overview of what software tasks are going on at any given time and create predictable test suites for this type of complex design.
