Dennis Brophy The UCIS Story There is no secret as design sizes grow it is doubly burdensome for verification.  Two factors that are easy to measure is the time it takes to simulate a design and the other is the size of the dataset that contains the results of the verification runs. Simulation times are growing and the datasets are getting larger.  While time and attention is given to accelerated verification through … Read More

Are You Covered?

Posted by Matthew Ballance

Matthew Ballance As a marketing guy, spending time with real engineers is always a welcome sanity check. Sometimes it’s easy to abstract a bit too much and forget some of the practical realities of the verification process. A few of my recent sanity-check moments have occurred around the concept of stimulus-coverage closure. In a coverage-driven verification flow that uses constrained-random stimulus, stimulus coverage … Read More
