Software Driven Test of FPGA Prototype
Use development software to drive your DUT on an FPGA prototyping platform

Most everyone would agree how important FPGA prototyping is to test and validate an IP, sub-system, or a complete SoC design. Before the design is taped-out it can be validated at speeds near real operating conditions with physical peripherals and devices connected to it instead of simulation models. ...
