With traditional emulation, the recompiles would have taken overnight instead of a few hours.
While these capabilities can be implemented in emulators built with off-the-shelf FPGAs, it is necessary to recompile the FPGA that contains the storage element, which takes about 30 minutes.
Until now, changing probe points inside the FPGA could take hours because engineers had to change the design and recompile the FPGA in order to select a new group of internal signals.
Until now, changing probe points could sometimes consume hours of time because engineers were required to change the design and recompile the FPGA in order to select a new group of internal signals.
By eliminating the need for time-consuming recompiles to test for code errors, an application can be honed before being installed on the intended device.
This is also the same high-performance dual-processor system Linus Torvalds, architect of the Linux kernel, uses for his own recompiles.
