Mentor Forum for Verification 2014 India



Hotel Vivanta by Taj, MG Road
No.1, MG Road

Verification is a challenge be it IC or FPGA based designs. Verification of IP blocks, subsystems and complete SOCs is a major challenge for the industry today. Verification teams are trying to use multiple tools and methodologies to achieve verification closure in the current aggressive time to market schedules. Some of these challenges are related to low power verification, verification management and planning, managing all the coverage data, having a common debug environment,  effective reuse “vertically” and horizontally” and verifying complexities such as coherency etc. On the other end you have FPGA designer spending hours together on debugging simple issues on the board and in the lab. How and what can cater to make verification more effective across the entire gamut from FPGA designs to complex SoC’s and from simple IP’s to System level? If you want to know the answer to this question, this Verification Forum is for you.

Don't miss out on this excellent networking and learning opportunity.
