2007-11-01 Software drives prototyping for ASICs, SoCs
Much can be done to make prototypes faster to bring up and easier to change. The ultimate goal is to create an environment where designers can get to work quickly, debug rapidly and make changes without delay. In this new era, FPGA-based prototyping will have a key position along with other verification methodologies.
2015-06-25 Software development: Automated vs manual testing
Should we manually test applications or automate this process? Companies can get into a real dilemma trying to answer this question, but is there really a rivalry between these two testing techniques?
2007-11-13 Researchers take software approach to post-silicon debugging
The FogClear software-only approach to post-silicon debugging aims to make obsolete the "first silicon" moniker by repairing errors in prototypes in hours rather than days
2007-12-26 Report: Software errors to delay hybrid drive takeoff
A report from market researcher Objective Analysis predicts that only about 13 million of the hard disks that incorporate NAND flash for caching key data will ship in 2008 due to software errors
2012-04-25 Reducing cost and size: The software angle
A new approach that combines a reliable language with customizable and specialized run-time libraries can trim both cost and footprint size for embedded systems.
2014-07-09 Minimising embedded software development costs
There are various effective test strategies for cutting development costs. Deciding what tests to employ is a bit of an art-form best guided by experience, but here are some tips on what's important.

Accelerated Tech announced that its code|lab Debug software debugger now provides support for the ISA-Nios II and ISA-Nios II/T system analysis tools from FS2
2006-05-16 Embedded experts: Fix code bugs or cost lives
The Therac 25 was supposed to save lives by zapping tumors with targeted blasts of radiation. Instead, the device delivered massive overdoses that killed three patients and injured several others because of software glitches by a lone programmer whose code was never properly inspected and tested
2008-05-01 Eliminate bugs with static analysis
Static source code analysis tools have evolved from simple syntax checkers to powerful tools for identifying flaws in the complex interactions of large code bases.
2015-11-24 The truth behind product 'repairability,' obsolescence
Is it wrong to say that there is planned obsolescence in our products via hardware failure, when the reality is that its obsolescence is due to problematic software upgrades or new standards
