Co-verification of Hardware and Software for ARM SoC Design US$72.95

Co-verification of Hardware and Software for ARM SoC Design

Hardware/software co-verification is how to make sure that embedded system software works correctly with the hardware, and that the hardware has been properly designed to run the software successfully -- before large sums are spent on prototypes or manufacturing.

This is the first book to apply this verification technique to the rapidly growing field of embedded systems-on-a-chip (SoC). As traditional embedded system design evolves into single-chip design, embedded engineers must be armed with the necessary information to make educated decisions about which tools and methodology to deploy. SoC verification requires a mix of expertise from the disciplines of microprocessor and computer architecture, logic design and simulation, and C and Assembly language embedded software. Until now, the relevant information on how it all fits together has not been available. Author Jason Andrews, a recognized expert, provides in-depth information about how co-verification really works, how to be successful using it, and pitfalls to avoid. He illustrates these concepts using concrete examples with the ARM core -- a technology that has the dominant market share in embedded system product design. The companion CD-ROM contains all source code used in the design examples, a searchable e-book version, and useful design tools.

  • The only book on verification for systems-on-a-chip (SoC) on the market
  • Will save engineers and their companies time and money by showing them how to speed up the testing process, while still avoiding costly mistakes
  • Design examples use the ARM core, the dominant technology in SoC, and all the source code is included on the accompanying CD-ROM, so engineers can easily use it in their own designs
