Overview:
As SoCs continue to grow in size, designers
using FPGAs for prototyping find themselves needing wider signal visibility and
more debug capacity for complex protocol validation. They require easier ways to
transition from the simulator verification environment to an FPGA-based system
and alternative ways to model SoC subsystems or interfaces that are not readily
available. New methods and technology presented at the seminar will show how to
increase the ROI of an FPGA-based prototype and expand its role for
hardware/software validation.

This webinar is intended for all designers who are either already prototyping
their ASIC design or are considering prototyping their next ASIC design. Learn
about best practices and new technology that will increase the productivity of
FPGA-based prototypes for hardware/software validation.

What
attendees will learn:

  • Best practices for FPGA-based prototype bring-up troubleshooting and RTL
    debug
  • New technology to increase signal visibility and sample storage of
    prototypes
  • Connectivity options for prototypes that expand the number of HW/SW
    validations scenarios supported
