Earlier in Part 1, we described the benefits of leveraging virtual platforms to validate architecture, performance and embedded software. In this second part, a case study is provided as a means to illustrate the concepts and benefits of using a well-modeled virtual platform of a simple system-on-chip (SoC) design.
The article will discuss how to effectively use interface and abstraction techniques, modeling tools, debugging techniques, and profiling to characterize and validate architectures and embedded software.
