FPGA-Based Prototyping: Big Design - Small Budget? | EE Times
Recent advancements in partitioning, debug, and scalability have made FPGA-based prototyping the ideal solution for even the largest ASIC/SoC designs.
Utilizing AXI for Early Design Stage FPGA Prototyping
FPGA-based prototyping has typically been used during late stage design for system validation and software development. FPGA-based prototypes closely resemble final silicon chips in speed and accuracy, providing significant value in full-chip validation and early software development. Realizing these benefits of FPGA prototyping late in the game, however, can have serious repercussions – finding bugs far too late in the process delaying software implementation even further. In a tight competitive environment, missing the prescribed time-to-market window can be disastrous.

Conquering the Next IoT Challenges with FPGA-Based Prototyping
The need for ever-connected devices is skyrocketing. As I fiddle with my myriad of electronic devices that seem to power my life, I usually end up wishing that all of them could be interconnected and controlled through the internet. The truth is, only a handful of my devices are able to fulfill that wish, but the need is there and developers are increasingly recognizing that we are moving to a connected life. The pressure to create such a connected universe is so immense that designers need a faster, more reliable way to fulfill our insatiable need.
Five Challenges to FPGA-Based Prototyping | EE Times
The state of the art has progressed spectacularly since early forays into FPGA-based prototyping, but there are still challenges to be overcome.
