Tom Fitzpatrick Hi Everyone, Just wanted to let you know that we just posted the PDF of the latest, Texas-Sized, DAC edition of Verification Horizons on the Verification Academy. In addition to my Editor’s Note, in which I liken what we do as verification engineers to my set-building experiences in local theatre groups, and brag about my daughter, you’ll find these fine articles: Interviewing a Verification Engineer  … Read More

Dennis Brophy Download the standard now – at no charge The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) has published the latest UPF 2.1 standard, officially called IEEE Standard for Design and Verification of Low-Power Integrated Circuits, many refer to it as IEEE 1801 or UPF for the Unified Power Format as this was the name Accellera had given it prior to transferring standardization responsibility and ongoing maintenance … Read More

Dennis Brophy Live & In-Person at DAC 2012! Verification Academy, the brain child of Dr. Harry Foster, Chief Verification Scientist at Mentor Graphics, was live from the Design Automation Conference tradeshow floor this year.  Harry is pictured to the right giving an update on his popular verification survey from the DAC tradeshow floor. The Verification Academy, predominantly a web-based resource is a popular … Read More

Dennis Brophy Where might our paths cross? It is always challenge to fit all the needed visits in during the Design Automation Conference (DAC).  If you happen to like some of the same events I attend, then the chances are good our paths might cross in public. Saturday and Sunday are busy with an Accellera Systems Initiative board meeting.  Split across two days, Accellera board members will meet to conduct traditional … Read More

Dennis Brophy System Standards Worlds Initiate Unification Accellera, who brought us SystemVerilog, and the Open SystemC Imitative (OSCI), who brought us SystemC have made known their intent to unite to form a single front-end electronic design automation (EDA) standards organization.  You can read their joint press release here. While this may come as a surprise to many, one thing has remained constant … Read More

After DAC

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls I reported before on my plans to attend the Design Automation Conference in San Diego last week. It was an interesting event and I would like to take this opportunity to share some of my experiences and impressions. By my standards, DAC is a large event. If you are familiar with the various shows focused on embedded, DAC is bigger than any of the ESC events, but smaller than Embedded World. It does … Read More

More on DAC

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Another quick heads up. Last week I mentioned that the upcoming DAC show in San Diego, CA [next week] will have a significant embedded focus. As the show has a long history in the EDA world, Mentor Graphics will, as usual, be making an extensive contribution. Full details are shown here. From the embedded software perspective, we are working with some key partners - Texas Instruments, Freescale, NetLogic … Read More

DAC

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls It is a curious thing, which I have written about before [here and here for example]: almost every electronic device that has been designed in the last 15-20 years has contained a microprocessor or microcontroller in some form - they are embedded systems. This means that, by definition, a significant part of the design and development process is the creation of software. And yet hardware design and … Read More

Simon Favre Just back from DAC in Anaheim. The last true Denali party was a smash. We’ll see if the tradition continues under new management. Nothing amazing to report about the show. Attendance seemed OK, though not stellar. Here’s an observation some may find interesting. I worked booth duty at both the TSMC OIP pavilion and the Global Foundries Global Solutions pavilion. At TSMC, the attendees needed to get … Read More

Ping Yeung After spending years verifying ASICs with dynamic simulation, I started working on static verification 10 years ago in a startup called 0-In Design Automation. I firmly believe that static verification can complement dynamic simulation. Static verification uses synthesis and formal technologies to find bugs in the design. It does not rely on simulation stimulus. You do not need to exercise the bugs, … Read More

Dennis Brophy UVM: Charting the New Territory At this year’s DAC, Accellera introduces UVM (Universal Verification Methodology) to the world at its Tuesday breakfast and panel discussion.  While Accellera may call this “Charting the New Territory,” it is not terra incognita to Mentor Graphics nor to tens of thousands of OVM users.  UVM is at is simplest, just OVM.  If you know OVM; you know UVM. While OVM and … Read More

DAC: Veni, vidi, steti

Posted by Simon Favre

Simon Favre Taking liberties with Latin and Caesar’s “Veni, vidi, vici” line, I can say “Veni, vidi, steti.” I came, I saw, I stood. :=) While the main Mentor booth seemed to be quite busy the whole time, I was elsewhere working booth duty at the TSMC OIP pavilion. It was a nice, open space kind of like the vendor area at a TSMC tech forum. The TSMC booth was very busy on Monday, with a lot of people representing … Read More
