Optimizing the performance for a complex application is a phase-coupled problem: the HW architecture needs to be optimized for SW application, and the SW needs to be optimized for HW. Virtual prototyping enables the early and joint consideration of HW and SW, across multiple teams and companies, and even before RTL of all components becomes available. This in-depth technical presentation will show the complete flow, including the creation of an accurate virtual prototype as well as the usage for SW bring-up and joint HW/SW performance optimization. The flow will be illustrated by a demonstration of a real-live SSD controller SoC.
