Integrated prototyping solution to speed SoC development

Synopsys' HAPS fpga based prototyping system

Looking to speed the development of SoC hardware and software, Synopsys has launched an integrated solution that combines its Virtualizer virtual prototyping system and its HAPS fpga based prototyping platform (pictured). By using the two approaches, designers are said to be able to start software development up to 12 months earlier.

Virtual prototyping can accelerate software development by providing more efficient debug and analysis. FPGA prototyping, on the other hand, provides cycle accurate high performance execution and real world connectivity. Synopsys says its hybrid solution blends the strengths of both methods to allow software development and system integration to take place earlier in the project lifecycle.
"Hybrid prototyping offers design teams the best of what both hardware and software prototyping have to offer," said John Koeter, Synopsys' vp of marketing for IP and systems. "By integrating the strengths of Virtualizer virtual prototyping with HAPS fpga based prototyping, Synopsys enables designers to develop fully operational SoC prototypes much faster and earlier in the design cycle and to accelerate software development and full system validation."
