The Next Generation of Testbench Debug Productivity


It is widely accepted that verification consumes at least sixty percent of time and resources on most semiconductor development projects. This statistic has been borne out by many industry surveys over the last twenty years. Verification technology has had to evolve to accommodate ever larger and more complex designs. Innovations such as constrained-random simulation and the Universal Verificat... » read more

Bridging the IP Divide


IP reuse enabled greater efficiency in the creation of large, complex SoCs, but even after 20 years there are few tools to bridge the divide between the IP provider and the IP user. The problem is that there is an implicit fuzzy contract describing how the IP should be used, what capabilities it provides, and the extent of the verification that has been performed. IP vendors have been trying to... » read more

Bridging The IP Divide


The adoption of an IP-based model has enabled designs to keep filling the available chip area while allowing design time to shrink. But there is a divide between IP providers and IP users. It is an implicit fuzzy contract about how the IP should be used, what capabilities it provides, and the extent of the verification that has been performed. IP vendors have been trying to formalize this as mu... » read more
