    DAC Cabbie Taught Me All I Need to Know About Verification
    Published. June 21, 2010

    Confidence from competence. Measurement through metrics. Sell without selling. These are the pearls I learned from my cab driver on the way home from DAC. Aside from the core truths they convey, they clearly define the top three verification items I saw at 47th DAC in Anaheim this year. Topping my list is the surging interest in OVM as it matriculates into the Accellera UVM. The OVM/UVM booth at DAC picked up nearly 800 leads! Despite relatively flat attendance, this is up roughly 3x over last year...

    The commercial aircraft industry is at a stage where it innovates at a much slower pace than the chip design industry -- however, we can find some parallels that offer us lessons. The most notably innovative aircraft recently developed is the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. It is the first commercial aircraft to use primarily composite materials in its construction in order to improve its fuel efficiency, which reduces operating costs for airlines and allows them to fly longer routes. This material also...
