Metrics in SoC Verification
Process metrics provide a clear, quantitative and objective measure to assess process performance and progress towards a specific process goal. SoC functional verification involves integrating multiple IP blocks. So understanding how to define, measure, correlate, and analyze appropriate IP and system-level metrics is fundamental to improving performance and achieving quality goals.
Verification Management Eases Those Re-spin Worries
There are three dimensions to any IC design project: the process, the tools and the data. Any comprehensive approach to verification management needs to handle them all.
Verification Management: Major Challenges
Verification management is one of the most important factors in today's verification of silicon chips and SoC designs.
Evolving the Coverage-Driven Verification Flow
Over the past decade, coverage-driven verification has emerged as a means to deal with increasing design complexity and ever more constrained schedules. Among the benefits of the new methodology -- a dramatically expanded set of verification metrics and tools providing much improved visibility into the verification process.
