Mentor Graphics Corporation (Wilsonville, OR) offers a unified embedded software debugging platform, from pre-silicon to final product, based on the integration of the Mentor® Embedded Sourcery™ CodeBench embedded software development tools with Mentor’s electronic system level (ESL), verification, and hardware emulation products. These include the Mentor Graphics® Vista™ Virtual Prototyping product, Veloce® hardware emulator, prototype target boards, and end products. The new common platform enables embedded software developers to access technology data from hardware design tools without leaving their native embedded software environment.
The common platform provides the flexibility to run unified embedded software debug and analysis at any stage of development, making it an ideal solution for earlier visibility of system performance and embedded software validation. This enables upfront and continuous retooling of today’s complex SoCs and multicore designs, resulting in greater accuracy, optimized performance, and faster product delivery.
