    Increasing design complexity is posing heighten verification complexity. Most of the consumer electronic products that are pushing vendors toward state of the art processes require real time responses. These applications cannot be debugged using software based tools. Thus the use of FPGAs for SoC verification has become the norm. In the last two weeks both Synopsys and Tektronix have introduced new powerful verification solutions to aid engineers developing SoC devices. read more...

    Q&A : How ST optimized their validation flow and decreased turn-around time by 8X using Synopsys Custom Explorer
    Published. November 1, 2012

    You may have watched the previous video I posted on CustomExplorer Ultra (if not, it is not too late ). A very interesting feature of this tool is its Waveform comparison capability. This utility allows you to compare two sets of simulation runs in batch and produce a text report of the differences. In just [...]...

    Virtual Flash Memory Gets Real
    Published. August 8, 2011

    This week's Flash Memory summit will not only highlight the IP Cadence delivers, but will touch on innovative application of virtual prototype technology for Flash Memory firmware and system development. Developing complex memory controllers is challenging, and an increasing portion of the capability is delivered as firmware. Virtual prototypes of hardware for memory controllers, and the systems within which they operate, enable software to be developed months ahead of...

    Full System vs Sub-system Virtual Prototyping
    Published. August 6, 2009

    There is a strong movement in the industry to move to create Virtual Prototypes of systems, prior to RTL coding. These Virtual Prototypes are being used for early software development and architectural analysis. Since there are typically many blocks in a design, the development of a Virtual Prototype can be unwieldy. While you might have a goal of creating one, you may be dazed at the number of components that need to be created or acquired (multiple CPU's, DSP's, MPEG engines, multiple memory...

    AMIQ DVT Maximizes OVM Reuse Via Methodology Compliance
    Published. January 8, 2010

    The Open Verification Component (OVC) defined by the official OVM User Guide in the OVM downloads enables the highest levels of reuse.  While the OVM class libraries have the supporting classes for the OVC built-in, writing OVCs properly sits on the shoulders of the verification engineer.  With Amiq's DVT, the verification engineer has the means to check their OVC for OVM compliance. To help you learn more about DVT compliance checking, the good folks at Amiq put together a short video. ...

    Some Final Real-World Assertions for the Holidays
    Published. December 20, 2011

    My last "real-world assertions" blog post seems to have tickled a bunch of people with my story about the racy narration at the historic Red Fort in Delhi. I've heard from several folks who have also seen the show and had a similar reaction. Just out of curiosity, I did a Web search and found a half-dozen or so other blogs and travelogues with comments similar to mine. Concluding my series, and in the spirit of the holiday season, here are a few final amusing incidents related to shopping...
