How much target hardware does your embedded application software actually use? VLAB VDMs are bringing new thinking to an age old problem.

The VLAB Sitara AM64x V-EVM Available Now

The announcement of a new product would normally come with a title of 'Now Available'. Arguably 'Available Now' is more important, with ongoing global shortages of semiconductors impacting supplies of development and test hardware! The ASTC Virtual EVM for TI Sitara...

Do software engineers build tools for software engineers?

This may seem like a cross between a circular question and a particularly awkward attempt at a Zen kaon. Actually it is intended as a serious question about product design. In many industries that we don’t work in but periodically have to interact with it seems the...

Do you need ‘Cycle Accurate’?

For those scratching your head, possibly because you are new to simulation, here is a quick explanation. In digital simulation there are multiple ways of simulating embedded hardware, each with its pros and cons. Perhaps the simplest explanation, Cycle Accurate...

Finding perspective on the semiconductor shortage

When you read the recent headlines on global chip shortages, does R.E.M. or David Bowie spring to mind? On one hand it could be The End of the World as we Know it. Or maybe it's just another round of Changes. No this is not a test to see when you started listening to...

Unreal Simulation …. Hero or Villain!

Explaining new concepts using the things that we find around us is nothing new. In a previous blog, the connection between changes in sport called for challenging assumptions and trying new types of testing. Today we are going to use another ... Comic Books! Having...

Scripted vs Interactive

An epic struggle ... or complementary?While the title may suggest an epic struggle, a competition, an either / or proposition, in the field of embedded software debug and test, Scripted and Interactive should be seen as complementary. Like the well worn adage, there...

Challenge your assumptions

Have you ever noticed that sometimes the source of inspiration or clarity can come from the most unlikely source? Recently I was listening to a talk back sports radio show where one of the hosts was asked the question, “What has been the biggest change to Football in...
