Automation Management: Are You Living a Scripted Life?
Increasing demand for high quality IP and SoC designs and ever shortening design cycles puts pressure on IP and SoC houses to leverage automation as much as possible throughout the entire electronic design and verification processes.
Efficient Project Management and Verification Sign-off Using Questa Verification Management?
Test and Verification Solutions (TVS) uses Questa Verification Management (Questa VM) for both project management and verification sign off for its asureVIP development program.
Process Management: Are You Driving in the Dark with Faulty Headlights?
If your car's headlights were faulty, would you even think about leaving home in the dark bound for a distant destination to which you've never been? Even if you were armed with a map, a detailed set of instructions and a good flashlight, the blackness on the other side of your windshield would still make it difficult to navigate. And even with reliable headlights and maps, you'll invariably still encounter obstacles and detours.
Data Management: Is There Such a Thing as an Optimized Unified Coverage Database?
With the sheer volumes of data that are produced from today's verification environments there is a real need for solutions that deliver both the highest capacities along with the performance to enable the data to be accessed and analyzed in a timely manner.
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.
Verification Management and Planning
When verification is not under control, project schedules slip, quality is jeopardized and the risk of re-spins soars. What’s required is a common platform and environment that provides all parties – system architects, software engineers, designers and verification specialists – with real-time visibility into the project.
Re-defining Verification Performance
Performance is key to achieving verification productivity. Yet, traditional brute force approaches to improving performance will only provide incremental benefits, which will not keep up with Moore's Law.
Verification Planning and Management Consulting
The gap between your ability to design and your ability to verify is growing fast. Mentor Consulting minimizes the design/verification gap through industry-proven techniques and tools to improve the quality, efficiency and determinism of your verification project.
