Hardware-Software Co-Verification Of Embedded Systems Design

One of the most critical steps of embedded system design is the integration of software with hardware. With the advent of system-on-a-chip (SoC) a hardware-software co-verification technique has emerged where chips could be adequately tested in a simulation environment before silicon fabrication. However, many complex SoC designs are still using nothing more than a full-functional simulation model of a microprocessor and waveforms to debug complex hardware and software. The key to a successful HW-SW co-verification solution is to avoid hardware-centric verification methods and meet the needs of the software engineers. This paper demonstrates Axis' hardware-software co-verification methodology and technology that addresses the needs of the software engineers while promoting collaboration between the software and hardware teams.
