Co-verification of Hardware and Software for ARM SoC Design by Jason Andrews

By Jason Andrews

Hardware/software co-verification is tips to ensure that embedded process software program works competently with the undefined, and that the has been appropriately designed to run the software program effectively -before huge sums are spent on prototypes or production. this is often the 1st ebook to use this verification strategy to the speedily turning out to be box of embedded systems-on-a-chip(SoC). As conventional embedded method layout evolves into single-chip layout, embedded engineers has to be armed with the required details to make trained judgements approximately which instruments and method to install. SoC verification calls for a mixture of services from the disciplines of microprocessor and computing device structure, good judgment layout and simulation, and C and meeting language embedded software program. beforehand, the appropriate details on the way it all suits jointly has now not been to be had. Andrews, a famous professional, offers in-depth information regarding how co-verification fairly works, how you can prevail utilizing it, and pitfalls to prevent. He illustrates those suggestions utilizing concrete examples with the ARM center - a know-how that has the dominant marketplace proportion in embedded procedure product layout. The significant other CD-ROM includes all resource code utilized in the layout examples, a searchable booklet model, and invaluable layout instruments. * the single e-book on verification for systems-on-a-chip (SoC) out there * Will keep engineers and their businesses time and cash by way of displaying them how one can accelerate the checking out technique, whereas nonetheless heading off high priced error * layout examples use the ARM middle, the dominant know-how in SoC, and the entire resource code is integrated at the accompanying CD-Rom, so engineers can simply use it of their personal designs

Jerry Krasner of Electronics Market Forecasters June 2001. Hardware/software co-verification aims to verify embedded system software executes correctly on a representation of the hardware design. It performs early integration of software with hardware, before any chips or boards are available. The primary focus of this book is on SoC verification techniques. Although all embedded systems with custom hardware can benefit from co-verification, the area of SoC verification is most important because it involves the most risk and is positioned to reap the most benefit.

The final performance is based on the speed of the acceleration platform and the percentage of the simulation that can be run inside the acceleration hardware. In a typical acceleration situation, some of the simulation is left on the workstation. The ratio of the percentage of the simulation on the workstation versus the percentage of the design in the accelerator determines the final performance. An example of profile output from a simulator is shown in Figure 2-2. Due to testbench and PLI programs, this example shows that only a 5X speedup can be expected from simulation acceleration.

21 Chapter 1 9. You have no clue what this stuff is all about and want to learn something to at least sound intelligent about the topic at your next interview. Scope and Outline This book presents practical techniques to verify integration of SoC hardware and software. It provides detailed information and plenty of examples for the most common SoC being designed today, those using ARM microprocessors. The examples most directly relate to the SoC/ASIC/ASSP market where the risk is greatest and mistakes equal money.
