CDC Verification Hands-on Workshop
Today's complex, multi-clock designs create new verification challenges that must be addressed to avoid costly respins and endless debug cycles. In particular, interactions between domains with different and often asynchronous clocks demands verification that each clock domain crossing (CDC) works reliably. Traditional simulation does not address CDC verification well, because simulation semantics do not accurately reflect the silicon behavior of signals crossing clock domain boundaries. Targeted verification technology that focuses specifically on the CDC verification problem, using an integrated combination of verification technologies, has become absolutely necessary. This workshop will deliver an overview of Questa CDC followed by a hands-on experience.
What You Will Learn
- The three common areas where CDC paths have functional errors
- How Questa CDC can identify and eliminate all three common CDC error types
- Methods for facilitating effective CDC verification
- How to run Questa CDC with a step by step hands-on exercise
Who Should Attend
- Design Verification engineers and managers
