Unlock Your Vision… And A Bit Of EDA History


Repetitive patterns and hardware designs have something in common: there may be more than meets the eye. Even simple designs can have corner cases that are hard to detect by code review alone, and the situation is even more complex if third-party or legacy IP is involved. What if the IP has a deliberately hidden function? This is where verification tools like OneSpin 360 come in, to remove huma... » read more

Verification Knowledge At Your Fingertips


If you’re like most engineers, you’re curious about how other engineers tackle some of the most difficult challenges. What can you absorb from them and apply to your own projects? Learning from experience has tremendous value but learning from others’ experiences is arguably more valuable since the cost to acquire that knowledge is significantly cheaper. At OneSpin, we’ve lowered... » read more

RISC-V Becoming Less Risky With The Right Verification


RISC-V continues to make headlines across the electronic design industry. You may have seen the recent news that the OpenHW Group is delivering their first RISC-V core, the CV32E40P. If you attended last month’s RISC-V Summit, perhaps you attended “CORE-V: Industrial Grade Open-Source RISC-V Cores” by Rick O’Connor, president of the OpenHW Group. In this session, Rick discussed how the ... » read more

A Tale Of Two Challenges: From Space Exploration To Unlocking Your Vision


I love a good puzzle, and I’m guessing most engineers do as well. After all, engineers spend their days solving complex problems to deliver the most advanced products to the world or to perform mission-critical tasks. We kicked off this season of merriment with the latter in mind at this year’s Nokia FPGA Conference and “Mission to Mars” Hackathon in late November. Now, just in time for... » read more

Tackling Functional Correctness, Safety, Trust And Security


We’re six months into the pandemic, and it looks like in-person conferences are becoming a distant memory and that virtual conferences are now becoming routine. It used to be that traveling to a conference (sometimes long distances) was the only way to be able to attend technical presentations and learn about the latest technologies and methodologies, and that was only if you received permiss... » read more

Cleared—And Verified—For Takeoff


If you’re like me, you’re probably not in any hurry to get on an airplane amidst our current global pandemic. Commercial air travel has declined dramatically as a result of the novel coronavirus—but beyond private and recreational travel, aviation remains an essential component of many key areas of modern life, including military and defense; commerce and package delivery; medical care; s... » read more

IP Integration Verification At DVClub Europe


Most people involved in pre-silicon verification of digital designs and electronic design automation (EDA) know the folks at Test and Verification Solutions (T&VS – now acquired by Tessolve to offer a full VLSI and test service). Among other things, they organize the Verification Futures (VF) conference in the UK and the DVClub Europe meetings. These are highly technical events, with plen... » read more

Real Highlights For Virtual DAC 2020


My first time at DAC was in 2006 in San Francisco. I was mesmerized by it: so many people, so much cool technology, so much fun with weird giveaways, raffles, happy hours, the Denali party and Disco Inferno at the legendary Fillmore. DAC is the most important, comprehensive conference for anyone developing integrated circuits (ICs) and systems-on-chips (SoCs). With an incredible list of ... » read more

FPGA Equivalence Checking For A Nuclear Safety Controller


Every chip development team wants to find and fix all the bugs they possibly can in pre-silicon verification. Turning a chip to fix issues found in the bring-up lab incurs high costs and product delays; bugs found in the field are even more expensive to repair. But for some applications, including military/aerospace, implanted medical devices, and autonomous vehicles, the consequences of a faul... » read more

Access To Verification Knowledge While Remote Working


As someone who is used to working from home, the recent global events haven’t had as much of an impact on my ability to keep productive. Our team at OneSpin is very adept with remote-working relationships as many of us reside all over the world. Having said this, we recognize that not everyone or every company shares in this situation. Working from home can create specific challenges when ... » read more
