Questa CDC - Verifying CDC Reconvergence with Silicon-Accurate Models Webinar
On-demand Web Seminar
Multi-clock designs are subject to metastability causing mismatches between simulation and the silicon reality. This webinar focuses on how to ensure that simulations of such designs can nevertheless be accurate predictors of silicon behavior.
We show through a set of detailed examples how non-determinism caused by metastability in clock domain crossings can lead to functional problems. We discuss the pros and cons of some current approaches to model metastability, and explain how the comprehensive Questa CDC solution helps you find and eliminate these problems during the RTL simulation of your ASIC and FPGA designs.
What You Will Learn
- How metastability can lead to functional issues in silicon
- Why metastability cannot be verified by traditional simulation methods
- The differences between current metastability modeling techniques
- How Questa CDC can help to eliminate functional issues caused by metastability
