Virtual Prototypes For Early Software Development

Requirements, solutions and use cases.

popularity

This white paper examines tthe challenges of developing some of the hardware-dependent software layers – namely boot ROM code, OS bring-up, driver development – used in fast-evolving mobile devices and how to use virtual prototypes to:

  • Start developing software far in advance of hardware availability
  • Break the gating dependencies between layers in the software stack to enable parallelized development
  • Develop the silicon validation suite before hardware is available
