Verification Strategy for Mixed-Signal SoCs



This webinar will look into various tools available for Analog design verification, help understand underlying techniques and how they fit into SoC verification and how to take advantage of those tools. It will cover the various verification options available when putting mixed-signal blocks together in a SOC and the benefits and weakness of each.

The designers have multiple choices of tools and methodologies to use for Mixed-Signal design verification.

Setting up the verification environment in early phase of design and choosing the right tools helps in efficient verification of design. The ever increasing design size and complexity of SoCs makes the choices non-trivial.

What You Will Learn

  • The tradeoffs necessary to achieve adequate coverage in reasonable time in mixed-signal SoC verification
  • The features and functions of a mixed-signal environment that are necessary for a flexible verification strategy
