There are many reasons why hardware-based emulation is a “must have” for an effective verification flow. Increased complexity, protocols, embedded software, power and verification at the system level all drive the need for the kind of performance, capacity, and “shift-left” methodology that only emulation delivers.
But this growing need for emulation is still met with some resistance by management and verification teams primarily because some regard emulation as an expensive and hard to use resource. What is at the heart of these perceptions, and how can an emulation job management strategy address these misconceptions?
OVERCOMING RESISTANCE TO EMULATION
Buying an emulator is an investment in equipment that solves a large scale
