The Verification Academy - A Roadmap to Advanced Functional Verification Adoption Web Seminar
On-demand Web Seminar
The Verification Academy is the first of its kind. Its goals are simple: to provide you everything necessary to advance your skills and evolve your organization's advanced functional verification capabilities. The Verification Academy provides a methodological bridge between advanced functional verification high-level value propositions (related to advanced verification technology) and the low-level details (related to specific tools and verification languages).
The Verification Academy is organized into a collection of free online courses, focusing on various key aspects of advanced functional verification allowing the participant to pick and choose specific topics of interest, as well as revisit any specific topics for future reference.
After completing a specific module of courses, the participant should be armed with enough knowledge to then understand the necessary steps required for maturing their own organization's skills and infrastructure on the specific topic of interest.
