This white paper provides a quantitative summary of the gains realized in Synopsys' USB OTG driver development project through the use of virtual platforms, as well as an outlook of how to apply the lessons learned from the USB OTG driver development to other connectivity IP such as SATA, Ethernet, DDR2 and DDR3.
