THE IMPORTANCE OF SIMULATION TURN-AROUND TIME
Rapid simulation turn-around time is critical for high-functioning SoC teams because it enables a tight feedback cycle that teams use to constantly validate progress. Whether the result is a failed compile, passing simulation or anything in between, the sooner you get that result, the sooner you get to the next step and closer you get to your ultimate objective: passing silicon.
A big part of enabling that rapid turn-around time is a fast and effective build flow. Questasim has a few different options for optimizing build flows depending on your application. Let’s go through a few of those options, starting with a simple lump sum build and working our way through options that enable an optimal
