FPGA vendors continue to innovate creating new ways for FPGA users to more efficiently design into today's increasingly complex FPGAs. This has created a widening gap between design abstraction and verification of these FPGAs in which traditional verification approaches come up short. As a result, the balance is shifting as more FPGA users want and need to adopt modern verification practices in order to be competitive. Unfortunately, they don't always know where to start or find the cost/risk to great to embark on. In this session you will learn about themes in the FPGA industry that are pushing the need for advanced verification, understand how other FPGA users in industry are adapting to this and see how taking a new look at your verification methodologies can help you build higher quality, on-time products enabling you to be more competitive in today's evolving FPGA market.
