Carbon Design Systems recently released the latest version of SoCDesigner Plus. The new version expands the models eligible to be used with Swap & Play. SoCDesigner Plus automatically supports all fabric and DDRx memory controller components. As a result, many more design teams can boot an operating system in seconds and then debug with 100% accuracy using Swap & Play. Carbon’s newly enhanced Swap & Play support and updated CPAKs are available now for all SoCDesigner Plus users.
Synopsys released version 12.06 of their Virtualizer tool set for creating virtual prototypes and Virtualizer Development Kits (VDKs) for accelerating embedded software development. Virtualizer 12.06 release makes it easier for design teams to create virtual prototypes and deploy them to software engineers in VDKs. The new Virtualizer 12.06 release is available now.
The Mentor Graphics SystemVision SVX Client environment for the NI LabVIEW software enables designers to develop test bench against a virtual prototype based upon product’s specifications, and then use the exact same test bench in the NI LabVIEW software on physical prototypes. As a result, test bench development to be done in parallel with system development and prototyping. The combination of SystemVision SVX with LabVIEW provides for continuous product test program development much earlier in the development cycle.
