Injecting Automation into Verification – Improved Throughput

Details

Overview

This webinar will focus on the highest value tools and techniques for improving test stimulus, debug effectiveness and simulation throughput. One of the most common verification process improvement opportunities is being able to more easily create test cases, including leveraging standard bus interfaces like PCIe for stimulating your system. We will also describe common techniques for improving simulation performance. If you are able to stimulate your design with simulation more effectively you will find that debug productivity in simulation is vastly superior to debug time in an hardware lab. We will show common and recent improvements in simulation debug throughput. We also highlight additional pre-built verification automation components for verification process throughput.

What You Will Learn

  • Learn how make writing tests easier
  • Learn how deploy an optimized simulation model
  • Learn latest techniques for root cause analysis
  • Learn how standard protocols are an opportunity for verification automation
