100% Signal Visibility during Emulation Dynamic Debug with HVD Technology   
Abstract: When it comes to debugging during emulation, engineers are forced to use multiple applications to ensure proper hardware signal data extraction and visualization. Learn from this webinar a leading edge technology that intelligently extracts data from the FPGA emulator to provide 100% signal visibility during emulation. This approach delivers up to 70% bandwidth savings in the critical emulator communication channel. Both dynamic and static probes from emulation can also be visualized in the Riviera-PRO waveform viewer preserving the original signal names and hierarchy paths and providing complete traceability to the design’s RTL source code. Play webinar

Accelerate SoC Simulation Time of Newer Generation FPGAs   
Functional verification of a design at the three design stages (RTL, Gate-Level and Post-Route) are essential steps to ensure correct behavior of a design according to requirements, however they are limited by HDL simulator speed. While HDL simulators offer advanced debugging capabilities and provide robust design coverage information, their speed is the primary bottleneck of the design cycle when it comes to verification. This webinar will discuss a faster, safer, and more thorough verification environment that combines the robustness of an HDL simulator with the speed of FPGA prototyping boards. Play webinar

Accelerating The Verification Of Hardware Dependent Software   
Software costs now dominate in SoC design. It is therefore imperative that the dependencies the hardware places on the software are captured and managed as early as possible. To ignore these is to risk project and budget overrun. In this webinar, we will illustrate why FPGAs are chosen as the verification platform for software integration. We will discuss the challenges of using FPGAs for verification and introduce the use of hybrid virtual prototypes. A comparison will be made between traditional FPGA ASIC prototypes and an FPGA-based emulation system. Play webinar

Aiding ASIC Design Partitioning for multi-FPGA Prototyping   
Whether it is an ASIC, ASSP or large FPGA design, emulation and prototyping are indispensable verification and validation activities. Often FPGA based platforms are chosen due to their scalability and versatility and more importantly, because of their runtime speed potential. What drives many away from this platform are the challenges of the multi-FPGA design setup that requires complex partitioning, arranging interconnections and managing multiple clock domains across multiple devices. Automation in this field is highly desirable to avoid time consuming and error prone hand-crafting and design hacks that would enable FPGA prototyping. Aldec HES™ Prototyping Platform and related solutions are here to mitigate these risks and facilitate rapid implementation of reliable FPGA prototypes. Design setup for a large multi-FPGA platform is facilitated with the HES-DVM tool that provides new partitioning utilities and can convert ASIC clocks to FPGA-proof structures. Awareness of clock domains and prototyping board connectivity resources facilitates in making wise decisions and allows achieving high clock ratios of FPGA prototypes. In this webinar, we will demonstrate the new HES-DVM prototyping flow that will increase your productivity in physical prototyping by shortening the setup time and increasing runtime speed of your design in FPGA.  Play webinar

FPGA-Based Prototyping Q&A: 100 Million Gates and Beyond   
As today's SoC and ASIC designs evolve to integrate the latest embedded processors, media interfaces, and high-speed serial communication, FPGA prototyping platforms are struggling to maintain the pace of designs surpassing the 100 million ASIC gate count. With the evolution of modular architectures and robust scalable backplanes, FPGA prototyping vendor solutions such as Aldec HES-7™ are able to keep pace with hardware designers. The HES-7 backplane enables scaling up to 96M ASIC gates, which can be serially daisy-chained for designs which require additional capacity. Play webinar

FPGA Accelerator for Genome Aligner - ReneGENE   
Aldec industry partner, ReneLife introduces its proprietary core technology, ReneGENE, for fast and accurate alignment of short reads obtained from the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) pipeline. The technology, devoid of heuristics can precisely align the DNA reads against a reference genome at a single nucleotide resolution. As genomics permeates the entire landscape of biology, including biomedicine and therapeutics, ReneGENE creates a genomic highway that significantly contributes to reduce the time from sample to information without compromising on accuracy, critical for lifesaving medicare applications, biotechnology product development and forensics.

In this webinar, we present AccuRA, a high-performance reconfigurable FPGA accelerator engine for ReneGENE, offered on Aldec HES-HPC™ for accurate, and ultra-fast big data mapping and alignment of DNA short-reads from the NGS platforms. AccuRA demonstrates a speedup of over ~ 1500+ x compared to standard heuristic aligners in the market like BFAST which was run on a 8-core 3.5 GHz AMD FX™ processor with a system memory of 16 GB. AccuRA employs a scalable and massively parallel computing and data pipeline, which achieves short read mapping in minimum deterministic time. It offers full alignment coverage of the genome (million to billion bases long), including repeat regions and multi-read alignments. AccuRA offers a need-based affordable solution, deployable both in the cloud and local platforms. AccuRA scales well on the Aldec platform, at multiple levels of design granularity.

FPGAs for Verification, UVM Simulation Acceleration with Scalable FPGA Platforms   
Most ASIC IP and SoC platforms will be validated at some point using FPGAs; this task is typically referred to as ASIC FPGA prototyping. At the same time, FPGAs are increasingly being used for verification due to the performance and scalability of these systems. In this webinar we will introduce an approach where UVM tests can be accelerated with the use of an FPGA co-emulator. The approach is built upon industry standards SystemVerilog and SCE-MI, and requires no changes to the test environment to accelerate. This enables tests to be moved seamlessly from simulation to the accelerator and back again. Play webinar

HW / SW Co-Verification: Why wait for silicon?   
Abstract: Traditional design flows postpone HW/SW integration and co-verification until the ASIC prototype is ready. With constantly shrinking time-to-market requirement this is significantly too late. If some HW bugs are identified during SW integration phase then it is impossible to make HW changes. Designers have to find sophisticated SW workarounds in order to avoid costly re-spins. Learn from Aldec how to start HW/SW integration and co-verification much earlier in your design flow along with the extensive debugging capabilities on both sides of HW and SW. Find out how to enable HW and SW design teams collaborate on a whole new level that has never been done before. Play webinar

Quick Introduction to SCE-MI   
Adhering to standards is key for reusability. The same applies for emulation infrastructure. Standard Co-Emulation Modeling Interface (SCE-MI) is Accellera's standard for bridging two realms: untimed (HVL, testbench on host) and timed (HDL, design in emulator). SCE-MI offers the flexibility to choose an emulation platform and become vendor independent, critical today when advanced FPGA technology allows for building fast and large capacity emulators at a fraction of the cost. Aldec’s Hardware Emulation Solutions include support for SCE-MI macro and function based interfaces. HES-DVM™ compiles and links SCE-MI infrastructure and automates design setup for custom FPGA prototyping boards. Building a robust verification environment is another challenge that Aldec supports with a library of Verification IPs that include transactors and speed adapters. Aldec provides reliable and reusable SCE-MI Verification IP blocks for standard interfaces like USB, PCIe, Ethernet. Play webinar
