Overview:
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.
