Today’s consumer are demanding devices that can handle more and more content, requiring integrated digital, audio, voice, and data that is always on, always connected. Larger, more complex designs with more software and tighter power budgets require new verification solutions that target the associated technological challenges. The questions are:
Why traditional digital simulation and hardware prototypes fall short when it comes to verifying IoT, Why using emulation is critical for a total verification solution.
Five characteristics of IoT and network designs have the most impact on the challenges companies face in verifying them:
- More Protocols per chip
- Larger Design
- Lower Power
- Higher software Content
- Increasing Network Switch and Router Activity
Emulation is the only way to provide the capacity, performance, and cycles to verify the large, complex, software rich designs that make up the IoT. However, a new emulation solution is required that is tailored to the IoT.
Simulation allows pre staging/validation services and real time support when the architecture is deployed. With Emulation/Simulation Software, vendors deliver a whole new generation of verification solutions for IoT and network providers. This solution is more flexible, provides more visibility, and scales with the increasing capacity and complexity of IoT and network system designs. It supports higher productivity and increases design quality, while delivering much of the traditional capabilities, without all the additional cables and hardware units.
