10.1Leveraging Hardware Emulation to Accelerate SoC Verification in Multi-Physics Automotive Simulation Environment Via the Functional Mock-up Interface
To fulfill the demands of computationally intensive applications, the SoC complexity in modern cars has increased. Hardware design and software development of these complex SoCs require fast verification methods able to evaluate workloads while shortening design time. Hardware emulation is a common technique used to answer this requirement. In this work, the ZeBu Server-3 which is a hardware emulation solution from Synopsys will be used. The design of modern automotive SoCs requires also the use of multiple simulation domains tools to validate the system in its future environment with all its external interactions. Thus, it is now becoming necessary to build hybrid co-simulation models. The de facto standard for such co-simulation is the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI). This work presents the integration of ZeBu Server-3 into a multi-physics automotive simulation environment through the use of FMI. The validation consists in setting up a hybrid test vehicle for vehicle speed control.

10.2Developing Dynamic Resource Management System in SoC Emulation
In modern SoC design verification, emulators are widely used machines. Emulators are special purposed computers running SoC design files, e.g. RTL and test benches. The increase in the number of SoC designs and the complexity of their designs leads to the increase in resource sharing problems. This paper describes a system that manages resource sharing problems in a cluster of hardware emulators and figure out the optimal policy from three dynamic resource management policies, Quality of Service(QoS), Greedy, and Fair share.

10.3A Novel Performance Evaluation Methodology using Virtual Prototyping and Emulation
ESL (Electronics System Level) environment is generally used for architecture exploration with performance/power estimation or used for SW (software) development at early design stage. CA (Cycle accurate) models are used for HW (hardware) architecture exploration with high accuracy of behavior and timing. At the SW development, LT (loosely timed) models are used due to needs for high speed simulation. Performance/power measurement is difficult on SW development platform and SW development is also difficult on architecture exploration environment because the model properties are different according to the purpose of use in the ESL. This paper proposes VP (virtual prototyping) driven hybrid emulation platform. The proposed method uses real SW which is developed on VP at pre-silicon stage and uses co-emulation scheme for special IP/blocks. The proposed methodology can reduce Android Platform development time and also can support rapid performance/power estimation with real benchmark SW.
