Carbon Design Systems Inc., a supplier of accurate virtual prototype solutions, and Breker Verification Systems, an SoC verification company, have unveiled the Carbon Performance Analysis Kits (CPAKs) pre-loaded with embedded system verification software and a direct link to Breker's TrekSoC visualisation environment.

According to the companies, the joint solution will enable virtual prototype users to validate the functionality and architectural features of their SoC designs using self-verifying, system-level software test cases.

As one element of the partnership, Breker will publish CPAKs containing the embedded tests and TrekSoC integration on Carbon's System Exchange web portal. Engineers will be able to quickly modify or extend this design to model the behaviour of their own SoC. The system tests generated by TrekSoC enable verification of critical system-level issues such as cache coherency, intellectual property (IP) integration, data ordering, multiple CPU interactions and other issues typically found later in the design cycle when they are more difficult to address.

A CPAK featuring the ARM Cortex-A15 preloaded with Breker's TrekSoC SoC verification software and a TrekSoC link is available from Carbon's IP Exchange web portal. Additional CPAKs are under development.

Pricing is available upon request.
