Testbench Automation: How to Create a Complex Testbench in a Couple of Hours
Bob Oden & Matthew Ballance - Mentor Graphics
This tutorial introduces three new technologies which significantly reduce the time to create a reusable testbench infrastructure. These three technologies are integrated into a single comprehensive flow that significantly improves the efficiency of the whole testbench creation process. In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a complex testbench that can be targeted at simulation or emulation in a couple of hours.
Stuck on a Desert Island without Simulation – Only Formal!
Joe Hupcey, Mark Eslinger - Mentor Graphics, Mitchell Poplingher - Microsemi & Kartik Raju - Knowles
It could happen to any of us: your plane is stricken by mechanical failure and is forced on a desert island. Your only hope of rescue is to verify the RTL for a solar powered drone that will fly to the nearest civilization with your message. All you have for your EDA usage is a solar powered Linux laptop, your DUT's RTL, some planning & management tools, and formal & CDC apps -- no simulation!
