What is ASIC emulation (also logic emulation)?
The use of programmable circuits, usually based on FPGAs, to emulate the design of an ASIC or an IC before it is built. ASIC emulation allows you to check the operation of a design before committing the time and money required to fabricate the IC. Emulation serves the same purpose as simulation/design verification but is much faster because it is based on hardware rather than software.
