A circuit for an emulation system that has a logic element having a RAM, lookup table, optional delay element and flip-flop/latch. The flip-flop/latch may behave as a flip-flop or as a latch and has separate set and reset signals. The delay element inserts a selectable amount of delay into the data path of the logic element in order to reduce race time problems. The logic elements may be combined to share input signals so as to increase the size of the RAM. The improved circuit also has a playback memory used to store up to a a plurality of copies of sampled data from a logic element so that emulation data can be played back for debugging purposes. Multiple read ports coupled to the logic elements permit a user to read out data from the logic elements during emulation in a time multiplexed manner. The input/output pins may be time multiplexed to carry multiple signals, unidirectionally or bidirectionally.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
