A switch, or server, serves <i>n</i> input queues, processing messages arriving at these queues to a single output channel. At each time slot the switch can process a single message from one of the queues. The goal of a switching policy is to minimize the size of the buffers at the input queues that maintain the messages that have not yet been processed.(More)
The growing importance of post-silicon validation in ensuring functional correctness of high-end designs increases the need for synergy between the pre-silicon verification and post-silicon validation. We propose a unified functional verification methodology for the pre- and post-silicon domains. This methodology is based on a common verification plan and(More)
Post-silicon validation poses unique challenges that bring-up tools must face, such as the lack of observability into the design, the typical instability of silicon bring-up platforms and the absence of supporting software (like an OS or debuggers). These challenges and the need to reach an optimal utilization of the expensive but very fast silicon(More)
