Hybrid Prototyping

Run FPGA-accelerated Verilog IP with a Virtual Platform

  • Early: starting as early, pre-silicon, in the development cycle as possible
  • High-speed: running at speeds that enable both the execution of real applications and OSes and the comprehensive validation of complex hardware
  • Accurate: leveraging the most accurate hardware models, including RTL IP

Individually, virtual platforms and FPGA-based prototypes may not be able to deliver on all three of these at the same time. However, by bridging the two environments with high-performance transaction-level connectivity, the best of both solutions can be leveraged in order to enable early, high-speed software development, with the most accurate hardware.
