Plan-Based Analog Verification Methodology

How to keep track of all of the different verification tasks in an analog design.


The ability to verify all the aspects of an analog design and to keep track of all the different verification tasks is a growing challenge. Manual attempts to do so often lead to mistakes since they rely on constantly updated documents. The Cadence Virtuoso ADE Verifier provides an overarching verification plan that links to all analog tests across multiple designers. The Virtuoso ADE Verifier presents that verification status in an easy-to-use cockpit inside the Virtuoso tool. Updates to the results or to the specifications are automatically reflected in the cockpit and thus the verification status is kept up to date. Verification holes can be identified and the process is automatically documented. If specification failures are found, it is simple to trace the exact test and owner to ensure that changes will be made.
