The ability to efficiently and quickly debug a prototype is essential to develop a useful prototype platform. This webinar will provide an overview of the wide spectrum of critical debug techniques for efficient FPGA-based prototype bring-up, embedded software development and hardware/software integration. We will introduce how Synopsys HAPS integrated physical prototyping solution enables prototyping teams to instrument their design and prepare the FPGA system for efficient debug. We will explain various debug techniques from trace-based debug to full system state capture.

Attend this webinar to learn about:

  • The variety of debug tools and methods required to support FPGA-based prototyping
  • What debugging support is needed for prototype bring-up, software development and hardware/software integration
  • An introduction to Synopsys’ HAPS integrated prototyping DTD (debug trace debug) technology
