Clock-Domain Crossing Verification for FPGAs

Details

Overview

This webinar talks about the types of problems associated with clock domain crossings, the things you can do to avoid these issues, and how to apply an automated verification solution to ensure your FPGA is free of CDC issues.

Today FPGA designers are equally plagued by clock-domain crossing (CDC) problems as ASIC designers are. Simulation alone doesn't catch the CDC bugs, resulting in an extremely difficult and time-consuming to debug process in the lab.

Questa CDC supports the leading FPGA vendors.

What You Will Learn

  • Issues with clock domain crossings
  • How to avoid these issues
  • How to apply an automated verification solution to ensure your FPGA is free of CDC issues
