Emulate and Debug Your Design
- You cannot use the execution time of an emulated design to estimate its execution time on an FPGA. Furthermore, running an emulated design is not a substitute for natively running a functionally equivalent C/C++ implementation on an x86-64 host.
- Emulation does not support cross-compilation to ARM® processor. To run emulation on a design that targets an ARM SoC device, emulate on a non-SoC board (for example,intel_a10gx_pacorintel_s10sx_pac). When satisfied with the emulation results, you can target your design on an SoC board for subsequent optimization steps.
