Fast FPGA Debug for High Reliability and Functional Safety Designs

Date: January 22, 2019 Time: 10:00 AM PST

The size and complexity of FPGA designs are increasing, driving a need for and integrated synthesis and in-system FPGA debug. The addition of error detection and mitigation into FPGA designs that incorporate high reliability and functional safety applications poses an additional problem of how to debug. This webinar introduces Synplify synthesis and its ability to quickly add triple modular redundancy (TMR) to a design.

In addition, this webinar will demonstrate how to use Identify RTL debugger to instrument RTL HDL while still at the RT-Level, debugging the implemented FPGA. Designers are able to designate sample triggers within the standard and TMR portions of the design, navigate the design graphically, and mark signals in the RTL to serve as probes. After synthesis, the results are viewed through a number of options: RTL source code, the HDL Analyst RTL View, and third-party waveform viewer, ensuring RTL-to-implementation equivalence and correct operation of the FPGA design.

FPGA designers will learn how to use Identify RTL debugger to efficiently debug and verify their high reliability and functional safety design in hardware.
