Mentor Graphics introduced emulation solutions to accelerate the verification of Universal Serial Bus (USB) SuperSpeed (3.0) products. The hardware and software solutions enable engineers to test USB SuperSpeed peripheral devices integrated on System-on-Chip (SoC) designs, and to develop and test their software drivers and firmware prior to silicon being available. The solution is available now for deployment.
Mentor Graphics introduced the iSolve USB Peripheral. The hardware-assisted solution accelerates the verification of Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 products, including hard disk drives and other mass storage devices. iSolve USB Peripheral enables designers to test the System-on-Chip (SoC) design that controls a hard disk drive or similar mass storage device, by providing an accurate, hardware-based model of the real disk drive connected to their SoC.
