How to Get There

Are you targeting any of the following hardware?
  • ARM Cortex –A, -R or –M MCUs and SoCs
  • Renesas RH850, V850 or SH2A based MCU
  • Freescale Qorivva MCU family
  • Infineon AURIX MCU family
  • Altera SoC FPGA
  • ARC processor cores

Come to the Synopsys booth and get to know Synopsys solutions for embedded software development. We'll show you how developing, integrating and testing your software in a virtual environment will let you start 9 to 12 months prior to hardware availability and improve your debugging and optimization turn-around time.

Are you developing and testing embedded control software such as the one found in automotive or industrial applications?
Synopsys' solution can help you address your development, integration and test needs with virtual Hardware-in-the-Loop including integration with Mathworks Simulink, Vector CANoe and Synopsys SABER as well as support your safety certification needs through fault and coverage testing.

Accelerating Android Platform Bring-up and Debug
February 26, 2013
16:15 - 16:45
Session 5: Android
Achim Nohl, Synopsys

Recently Google announced Platform Development Kits (PDKs) in addition to the usual Software Development Kits (SDKs), giving chipset companies and hardware developers' access to Android updates enabling porting of Android to their HW 2-3 months earlier. Bringing up Android on a new chipset or device can't be done without touching the Android Software Stack internals. While the Java application layer remains mostly unmodified, extensive low-level porting work has to be done to the underlying Linux and its drivers, the hardware adaptation layer and the Java native layer. Chipset, device specific services and applications also need to be integrated and tested along with the rest of Android. The vertical integration of devices across all those software stack layers is a fair challenge. We will discuss using Virtualizer Development Kits (VDKs) that provide an Android-aware debug and analysis framework allowing for a deterministic and successive top-down debug approach. We will also discuss the development and test of the Android hardware abstraction layer for a sensor subsystem in context of an ARM based platform. VDKs work with 3rd party tools such as the Google Eclipse SDK using the Android Debug Bridge and debuggers (ARM DS-5™ and Lauterbach TRACE32) to carry out embedded software debugging using the VDK as a virtual target instead of an actual board. VDKs allow earlier development of software updates and greater debug environment productivity for the device and hardware teams.

Virtual Prototyping: Beyond Starting SW Development Early
February 27, 2012
9:30 – 10:00
Session 6: Embedded System Design Automation I
Marc Serughetti, Synopsys

Having the ability to start software development, integration and test earlier has always been a key objective of software development teams. For many years, this has been possible with the use of virtual prototypes (a virtual representation of the target hardware). Beyond earlier software development, virtual prototypes offer many capabilities that also tremendously increase developer productivity. This presentation will highlight what makes a virtual prototype a powerful development tool for design tasks such as debugging, system prototyping and fault testing thus enabling its use many months before hardware availability all the way to deployment.
