Sinkhole or Springboard?

Depending on how well your company implements it, IC Designverification can be a quagmire that slows down your design delivery and creates frustration and conflict between teams, or a springboard that lets you deliver high-quality designs ahead of your competition.

In a recent interview with Pradeep Chakraborty, our CEO, Wally Rhines, discusses the intricacies of design verification today, the biggest verification mistakes design teams make, and what companies should be doing to successfully integrate advanced functional verification technologies and methodologies into their work flows. By bringing verification teams into the design environment, companies can benefit from their expertise and experience, and avoid making architectural design decisions that create verification sinkholes.

Wally ends with his Top Five (sorry, David Letterman) recommendations for verification. List your own Top Five before you read the interview, then see if you and Wally agree!
