Embedding HDL Design Expertise to Improve First Pass Success Rate



Watch this presentation to learn how to analyze and develop higher quality HDL code using HDL Designer. The session introduces a number of concepts such as design checking, analysis, code reviews and visualization to yield a better development process and reduce risk.

What You Will Learn

  • How to use design checking on HDL code to:
    • Identify coding issues earlier in development prior to simulation and synthesis
    • Confirm compliance to coding guidelines
    • Embed expert knowledge into coding guidelines
    • Speed-up analysis of IP and code reviews
  • What types of checks are available
  • Concepts like code reviews, design reviews, improved project documentation and use of assertions
  • How to use HDL Designer tool to improve design checking and analysis
