Emulation takes on post-silicon validation

Emulation takes on post-silicon validation
According to a study jointly carried out by Mentor Graphics and Wilson Research Group in 2014, at least one percent of bugs escape to silicon level, and that underscores the critical importance of post-silicon validation. Moreover, there simply aren’t enough verification cycles to find bugs that pass the pre-silicon phase.
