System Design and Verification 

Hardware/software co-verification
For effective system-level verification, engineers require a high-performance environment that allows access to hardware and software debuggers while running various system-level scenarios using firmware, drivers, operating systems, and application software. Conventional simulation of designs at RTL with embedded software at the system level is impractical and has performance limitations. Offering higher throughput, superior hardware/software debug, and fast compilation, the Cadence® System Development Suite allows software developers to run and debug their designs on top of a set of open, connected, and scalable platforms.

Palladium Z1 Platform
With an enhanced architecture, the standard rack-based processor platform is equipped with ultra-high-density logic blades optimizing multi-user verification throughput and efficiency. It is convenient to deploy in data centers while offering remote access to globally distributed teams. Scale up with the Palladium® Z1 platform, built for resilience, scalability, and extreme productivity.

Virtual System Platform
Our virtual prototyping solution for early software development, independent of hardware development, is a key component of the Cadence System Development Suite. The Virtual System Platform is part of a connected development flow and is used to validate the system hardware/software interfaces as the RTL becomes available. With early software development, higher software developer productivity, and continuous hardware/software integration validation, the Virtual System Platform and System Development Suite can shave months off of system development schedules.
