Hardware/Software coverification allows software applications to find hardware bugs or limitations before the hardware is complete. The DeskPOD system allows software and hardware to interact before the hardware is complete to enable the optimum tradeoffs to be made
The DeskPOD system has a unique ability to disengage from the simulator (for example, when the processor is accessing memory) when activity doesn't involve anything in simulation. This enables sufficient run-time performance to enable the software engineers to run software debuggers effectively.
The DeskPOD system supports a number of standard processors and can be readily adapted to new or proprietary silicon.
The integration of a real time kernel with newly designed hardware is a laborious and time consuming task - often performed toward the end of the project, when time is scarce.
DeskPOD allows you to start your integration and software testing BEFORE committing your hardware to manufacturing.
In addition, you will be using the SAME set of software development tools along the entire project, regardless of whether your hardware is real or virtual
