Leveraging Mentor VIP to Achieve More Verification with Less Effort
On-demand Web Seminar
Verification of IP blocks, subsystems and complete SOCs is a major challenge for the industry today. Many tools and techniques exist to help with this problem including languages, verification methodologies and EDA tools. The industry is standardizing on SystemVerilog to enable modern verification techniques such as assertions, constrained random and functional coverage and methodologies such as OVM and now UVM to provide an infrastructure to leverage that functionality and enable re-use across projects.
On the design side we are seeing increased use of industry standard interfaces to enable the reuse of design IP necessary to compete in the marketplace. This necessitates independent and rigorous testing of design interfaces, but also enables standard verification IP to be created that can be reused across projects.
Mentor Graphics is an independent supplier of verification IP (VIP) covering popular and leading edge industry standard interfaces and fully supporting SystemVerilog, OVM and UVM for simple integration into today’s verification projects.
