Virtual Prototypes for Early Software Development:
Requirements, Solutions and Use Cases

In previous white papers, we've looked at the demands of the rapidly changing market and how the use of virtual prototypes has evolved to help meet them. In this white paper, we look specifically at the challenges of developing some of the hardware-dependent software layers - namely boot ROM code, OS bring-up, driver development - used in fast-evolving mobile devices and how to use virtual prototypes to:
  • Start developing software far in advance of hardware availability
  • Break the gating dependencies between layers in the software stack to enable parallelized development
  • Develop the silicon validation suite before hardware is available
