Speed and Accuracy when You Need It
Built to enable the rapid creation of virtual and hybrid platforms, the Cadence® Helium™ Virtual and Hybrid Studio gives you the speed you need for early pre-silicon software bring-up and the accuracy you need for pre-silicon hardware/software co-verification, all with a unified embedded software debug experience and native integration with Cadence’s Xcelium™, Palladium®, and Protium™ verification engines.
Rapid Platform Assembly
Powerful GUI-based correct-by-construction virtual SoC platform assembly studio. Start with a reference platform booting the latest Linux and Android build, or from scratch with an extensive virtual model library, including, native support for the full Arm® Fast Model portfolio.
Advanced Hybrid with Gearshift Technology
Seamlessly mix virtual models with RTL models running on Xcelium, Palladium, or Protium engines, and dynamically hot swap from virtual to RTL models midway through simulations using the unique Gearshift technology.
Multi-core, multi-process embedded software debug interface connects seamlessly to both RTL and virtual CPU models, offering a unified debug experience from virtual to hybrid to RTL.
Helium Virtual and Hybrid Studio
Next-generation engine for HW/SW co-verification and debug
Helium Studio的Gearshift技术让我们可以动态实现虚拟到RTL的热切换，既提供足够迅速的早期软件开发，也可按需实现RTL的精确度。Helium Studio的嵌入式软件调试功能实现了软硬件协同验证，且无需考虑软件运行环境是虚拟核心还是RTL核心。
