A Faster Approach to Co-Simulation Using Questa and VPI
Co-simulating systems, including RTL and software, may often require excessive computational times if a cycle-accurate CPU model is used. However, many co-simulation exercises do not necessarily require precise CPU models and may benefit from the solution proposed here.
This article presents a not-widely-used method of co-simulation that doesn’t need a cycle-accurate CPU simulation model and reduces simulation time while still allowing functional testing of software and RTL.
