Other Important Features: IMAGE (I Made A Great Emulator) is based on an array of FPGAs. IMAGE is a world-class engineered, simulation accelerator for functional verification with a performance of 100X during the iterative debug-compile-run phase and 1000X during the regression phase of the design cycle. It is particularly suited for large designs [Verilog, VHDL, mixed]. It is the best price-performance verification tool for complex designs for all applications, be it processors, telecom, memory, multimedia, automobile etc. Emulator Software is from IIT Powai Labs, Mumbai. The IMAGE Tool (an FPGA based emulator) is being used for various courses like Digital VLSI design, Embedded System Design, Computer Organization, etc. It is also used for UG and PG projects
