Title: Method and apparatus for adaptive co-verification of software and hardwaredesigns

Abstract: A simulation system is provided for simulating behavior of a device forimplementing an algorithm using a software model and a hardware modelwhich are converted to a common programming language and mathematicalnotation. The simulation system uses the same input user interface for thesoftware model and the hardware model. Further, the simulation system usesthe same output user interface for generating the simulation results forboth the software model and the hardware model in the common programminglanguage and mathematical notation, thereby allowing a user to easilyverify and analyze the software and hardware simulation results foroptimization of the device.
