Simulator, emulation platform together ensures 100% visibility

Aldec, Inc. has announced enhancements in its Riviera-PRO simulator and HES-DVM emulation platform that together create a SCE-MI (Standard Co-Emulation Modeling Interface) based co-emulation debugging environment, which ensures 100% visibility. Enhancements include HVD (Hardware Visibility-based Debugging) technology for intelligent data extraction from the FPGA-based emulator, and the ability to transfer extracted data directly into the Riviera-PRO simulation database during emulation.

Built into the emulation solution, Aldec's HVD technology analyzes RTL code to identify the set of debugging probes that must be present in the emulation hardware to guarantee 100% visibility. This approach delivers up to 70% bandwidth savings in the critical emulator communication channel. Both dynamic and static probes can be visualized in the Riviera-PRO waveform viewer preserving the original signal names and hierarchy paths and complete traceability to the designs RTL source code.
