Do you need to improve verification performance for advanced-node SoCs? Learn how on May 14 in Munich.

The state space of a chip grows exponentially every 24 months. That’s the verification corollary to Moore’s Law. Verification engineers tackle the problem with faster simulation but that’s no longer enough. The complete verification cycle includes compilation/elaboration; RTL/gate/SV/e/SystemC mixed-mode simulation; … Continue reading
