Earlier SoC Design Exploration And Verification Gets Better Designs To Tapeout Faster

By Nermeen Hossam and John Ferguson Between the complexity of advanced node design verification and the competition to be first to the market, system-on-chip (SoC) designers no longer have the luxury of waiting until each sub-block of a chip is DRC-clean to start their chip assembly and verification. Today’s SoC designers typically start chip integration in parallel with block development.... » read more
