Intelligent Coverage Optimization: Verification Closure In Hyperdrive

Coverage dominates every aspect of verification for today’s complex IP and chip designs. Coverage metrics provide critical feedback on what has been verified and what has not, especially when automated stimulus generation techniques are used. All modern hardware design and verification languages include constructs for functional coverage specification and support a range of structural coverag... » read more

Using IP-XACT To Solve Design And Verification Problems

As today’s SoC designs grow more complex and time-to-market (TTM) pressures rise, designers are looking for techniques to build and update designs easily. Key elements for addressing these SoC challenges include the incorporation of more commercial IP components, internal design IP reuse, and extensive automation of design and verification activities. Enhanced interoperability and reusability... » read more
