Today, microprocessor advances abound: general-purpose digital microprocessors for personal computers have been joined by mixed-signal systems for wireless communication and embedded applications. Battery-powered mobile devices are replacing wallplugged servers. SoC and systemin-package designs are supplanting inhouse, single-source chip designs.

Software today can account for 80 percent of an embedded system?s development cost, test cost has increased exponentially relative to manufacturing cost, and verification engineers outnumber design engineers on microprocessor project teams. Overcoming the many existing design technology gaps will thusrequire a concerted effort by the entire industry.
