Reconfigurable Computing Turbo-Charges Simulation

System-on-Chip (SoC) and reconfigurable designs are introducing major new exciting advantages for the electronic industry. But at the same time, this emerging technology is posing design issues and challenges, most notably in the simulation and verification. And due to the reconfigurability of these chips, system designers are now dealing with inordinate amount of testing. For simulating SoC designs, there is a need for a special engine that will turbo-charge the simulation speed. This paper describes a new solution based on ReConfigurable Computing (RCC) technology that deploys a large number of processing elements to perform parallel simulation. Compared to simulating a gate at a time as in conventional simulation, RCC delivers much higher simulation throughput than traditionally available.
