Emulation Methodology for Drones and Other Video-Intensive Multimedia SoCs
by Richard Pugh on 09-28-2017 at 12:00 pm

What do drones, augmented reality devices, and 4K UHD TV have in common? They all include complex system-on-chips (SoCs) that must encode and decode, in real-time, data for increasingly higher definition video content. Verifying that these SoC designs are functionally correct is quite complex, but they must also function efficiently… Read More
