Virtual Prototypes: When, Where And How To Use Them

Traditional tools and methods for embedded software development are no longer sufficient.

popularity

An innovation-hungry public and a highly competitive marketplace make for short product cycles, while the sophistication and performance expected of digital devices grows with every new product generation. Heterogeneous multiprocessing, where different cores do specialized work, has become the industry norm inside those devices, radically increasing the amount of software needed, the importance of software in managing system resources and the possibility for error among interconnected, interdependent subsystems. Traditional tools and methods for embedded software development are no longer up to the jobs software is being asked to perform within the schedules engineering teams are required to meet.
