How to Boost Verification Productivity with SystemVerilog/UVM and Emulation

Use of emulation for hardware-assisted testbench acceleration is growing as design verification teams find that simulation alone cannot deliver the coverage or performance needed to get large, complex designs to market on time. If your design requires millions of clock cycles to fully verify, you need both simulation and emulation.
