This article presents a novel approach to the high-level system
verification problem based on a hybrid hardware/software virtual
emulation tool.  Unavailable components or sub-systems are physically
replaced on a prototype board by FPGAs whose electrical behavior is
driven by software simulations of high-level description models.  Such
a prototype can smoothly evolve towards the final system as soon as
the unavailable parts or the components under manufacturing become
available.  The simultaneous use of prototyping techniques such as
field-programmable circuit boards with software simulation
significantly improve the usefulness of our framework.  A low-cost
verification environment, with multiprocessing and multilanguage
capabilities currently in use at University of Bologna, is described.
