Why hardware is the obvious choice
when investing in an emulation product

When investing in an emulation product, real return on investment can only be measured and delivered when you can understand and quantify exactly what you are getting from your chosen tool.

Understanding the differences between software and hardware emulation helps provide clarity in your emulation purchasing decision.

Software Emulation

  • Software emulation is risky! It is built for simple scenarios when you are not required to mitigate any risk of inaccuracy or “under-testing”.
  • It won’t guarantee performance, stability or accuracy – the three key elements when testing and deploying effective software or systems for business.
  • It requires work to understand the results in context to your business and that equates to expensive engineers and their time. There is little or no analytics tools or root cause analysis. This is where one of the many hidden costs in software true cost of ownership occurs.
