In today’s fast-moving technology era, the most common approach for handling the needs of the market is a system-on-chip (SoC). The growing demand for SoCs has created a highly competitive market. Because of this, SoCs are getting more complex, the peripherals in the SoCs are continuously evolving, and the time to market is shrinking. A crucial component to match the complexities of SoC development is the availability of software. There is little room for mistakes, and software must be ready as soon as possible.
