Using the Palladium® XP series, your design team can perform more verification and validation tasks to help improve overall time to market and product quality. With its hot-swap technology, the Palladium XP series delivers unparalleled productivity as you can smoothly transition among simulation, simulation acceleration, and emulation environments at runtime without re-compilation.
The Palladium XP series combines two proven technologies (Palladium emulation and Cadence Incisive® Xtreme® acceleration) to deliver the best of both worlds. It transcends traditional emulation by offering flexible new simulation-like use models that were traditionally impractical. By integrating with the Cadence vManager™ Metric-Driven Signoff Platform, the Palladium XP series supports a metric-driven flow that accelerates verification. vManager Metric-Driven Signoff Platform automates and manages the execution of regressions on an accelerated verification computing platform. You’ll be able to use a common verification plan and extract constraint results from multiple locations into a common database for signoff analysis.
The Palladium XP series combines its processor-based compute engine and Unified Xccelerator Emulator (UXE) software to offer fast and predictable compiles. The platform runs high-performance verification applications and enables flexible new use models that transcend traditional emulation.
Through a compile flow, the Palladium XP series is congruent with the Protium S1 FPGA-Based Prototyping Platform for software development, system validation, and hardware regressions.
As Cadence promised, our validation environment now runs hundreds of times faster than with simulation. Accelerated VIP running on the Palladium XP increased my team’s productivity by 100%. It also enabled us to find bugs we were unable to reach using simulation.

Palladium XP is an essential tool that enables us to successfully develop our ASICs and to verify our design much earlier in the production cycle. This equates to cost, time, and money savings while helping us bring products to market much faster.

If all module behaviors were completely written in assertions, these bugs would be captured at the module level. Palladium XP plays a valuable role in helping us capture system bugs.
