How to simulate Qualcomm processors?

Hello everyone,

I want to know how I can simulate a Qualcomm processor or Intel processor before creating my pcb.

Is there any way where I can test my circuit?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you

You don't simulate the whole processor/micro controller. If your circuit take a digital output from the MCU, you can simulate your circuit with a clock signal input, with, eventually, the right frequency. If your circuit takes two digital outputs from the MCU, someone can lower the clock frequency of one of the outputs by a factor of two, so your circuit will be submitted to the 4 possible combinations, If you use analog outputs, you can use a triangular wave instead of a rectangular wave signal, to submit your circuit to all possibilities.

If you really, really need to simulate the MCU in all its glory, then the maker (TI, Analog Devices, ... ) may have a piece of software for that, which you can use, or even program/compile/run test.
