Cadence’s Palladium XP II claims 60X speed-up for embedded OS verification

Released by Cadence Design Systems as part of an enhanced system development suite, the Palladium XP II verification computing platform is claimed to significantly speed up hardware and software verification.

The multi-core multi-processor-based Palladium XP II platform offers an emulation capacity up to 2.3 billion gates. With reduced power and increased gate density, customers can now run larger payloads in a smaller footprint, reducing overall cost of ownership. Cadence has also added support for eight new mobile and consumer protocols for simulation acceleration.

Cadence has also expanded the capabilities of its system development suite centered around Palladium, adding patent-pending hybrid technology, which combines the Cadence Virtual System Platform with the Palladium XP series to deliver up to 60X speed-up for embedded OS verification and 10X performance speed-up for hardware/software verification.

An embedded test bench for the advanced virtualization of system environments enables users to verify peripheral software drivers prior to tape-out, resulting in faster post-silicon bring-up.
