Seminar Overview:
Chances are your design includes serial and parallel buses to route data throughout your circuit. Validating that the correct data packets are being transmitted and received on those buses is challenging enough, but what about when things go wrong? Finding the root cause of your problem among thousands of data packets is exhausting without the right tools and techniques.
