Hardware-Assisted Verification 

High-performance Emulation and Prototyping 

Increases in the size and complexity of SoC HW and embedded SW are driving the need for verification with massive testbenches and long tests – often spanning billions of cycles. Advanced verification technology is now required to meet the challenge of delivering the verification performance required for the largest SoCs. Synopsys’ ZeBu emulation solutions deliver the highest performance, highest capacities, and the best cost-per-gate in the industry. These solutions include ZeBu-Server and ZeBu-Blade2, for emulation, zFast, ZEMI-3, ZeBuWare and transaction-based VIP, for fast bring-up time, and ZeBu Debug, a comprehensive suite of emulation-based debug tools.
