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

By Jason Andrews

Hardware/software co-verification is the right way to ensure that embedded process software program works accurately with the undefined, and that the has been accurately designed to run the software program effectively -before huge sums are spent on prototypes or production. this can be the 1st e-book to use this verification strategy to the speedily growing to be box of embedded systems-on-a-chip(SoC). As conventional embedded approach layout evolves into single-chip layout, embedded engineers has to be armed with the required info to make trained judgements approximately which instruments and technique to set up. SoC verification calls for a mixture of services from the disciplines of microprocessor and laptop structure, good judgment layout and simulation, and C and meeting language embedded software program. before, the appropriate info on the way it all suits jointly has now not been to be had. Andrews, a well-known specialist, offers in-depth information regarding how co-verification quite works, the right way to succeed utilizing it, and pitfalls to prevent. He illustrates those techniques utilizing concrete examples with the ARM middle - a expertise that has the dominant marketplace percentage in embedded procedure product layout. The spouse CD-ROM comprises all resource code utilized in the layout examples, a searchable book model, and beneficial layout instruments. * the single publication on verification for systems-on-a-chip (SoC) out there * Will keep engineers and their businesses time and cash through exhibiting them the way to accelerate the checking out procedure, whereas nonetheless averting high priced blunders * layout examples use the ARM center, the dominant know-how in SoC, and all of the resource code is incorporated at the accompanying CD-Rom, so engineers can simply use it of their personal designs
