WEBINAR: Adnan on Challenges in Security Verification

WEBINAR: Adnan on Challenges in Security Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 06-09-2020 at 6:00 am

security testing

Adnan Hamid, CEO of Breker, has an interesting background. He was born in China to diplomat parents in the Bangladesh embassy. After I’m sure an equally interesting childhood, he got his BSEE/CS at Princeton. Where, like most of us he had to make money on the side, in his case working for a professor in the Psych lab on artificial intelligence… Read More


Breker Tips a Hat to Formal Graphs in PSS Security Verification

Breker Tips a Hat to Formal Graphs in PSS Security Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 04-16-2020 at 6:00 am

Breker security tables

It might seem paradoxical that simulation (or equivalent dynamic methods) might be one of the best ways to run security checks. Checking security is a problem where you need to find rare corners that a hacker might exploit. In dynamic verification, no matter how much we test we know we’re not going to cover all corners, so how can it… Read More


Verification, RISC-V and Extensibility

Verification, RISC-V and Extensibility
by Bernard Murphy on 02-05-2020 at 6:00 am

RISC-V

RISC-V is obviously making progress. Independent of licensee signups and new technical offerings, the simple fact that Arm is responding – in fundamental changes to their licensing model and in allowing custom user extensions to the instruction set – is proof enough that they see a real competitive threat from RISC-V.

Which all… Read More


Build More and Better Tests Faster

Build More and Better Tests Faster
by Bernard Murphy on 08-27-2019 at 5:00 am

Breker has been in the system test synthesis game for 12 years, starting long before there was a PSS standard. Which means they probably have this figured out better than most, quite simply because they’ve seen it all and done it all. Breker is heavily involved in and aligned with the standard of course but it shouldn’t be surprising… Read More


Taking the Pain out of UVM

Taking the Pain out of UVM
by Daniel Nenni on 07-29-2019 at 5:00 am

If you are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the many ways you can leverage the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM), Breker Verification Systems has gone to a lot of effort to put that information at your fingertips.

A technical subcommittee of Accellera voted to establish the UVM in December 2009. UVM was based… Read More


WEBINAR: Eliminating Hybrid Verification Barriers Through Test Suite Synthesis

WEBINAR: Eliminating Hybrid Verification Barriers Through Test Suite Synthesis
by Randy Smith on 07-16-2019 at 10:00 am

 

I’ve been following the evolution of the verification space for a very long time including several stints consulting to formal verification companies. It has always been interesting to me to see how so many diverse verification techniques emerge and been used, but without much unification of the approaches. With the emergence… Read More


Breker on PSS and UVM

Breker on PSS and UVM
by Bernard Murphy on 05-21-2019 at 5:00 am

When PSS comes up, a lot of mainstream verification engineers are apt to get nervous. They worry that just as they’re starting to get the hang of UVM, the ivory tower types are changing the rules of dynamic verification again and that they’ll have to reboot all that hard-won UVM learning to a new language. The PSS community and tool … Read More


Verification 3.0 Holds it First Innovation Summit

Verification 3.0 Holds it First Innovation Summit
by Randy Smith on 03-26-2019 at 5:00 am

Last week I attended the first Verification 3.0 Innovation Summit held at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara along with about 90 other interested engineers and former engineers (meaning marketing and sales people, like me). There was a great vibe and feel to the event as it exuded an energy level that I have not felt at an EDA event in years.… Read More


CEO Interview: Adnan Hamid of Breker Systems

CEO Interview: Adnan Hamid of Breker Systems
by Daniel Nenni on 02-21-2019 at 7:00 am

Breker Verification Systems solves challenges across the functional verification process for large, complex semiconductors. This includes streamlining UVM-based testbenches for IP verification, synchronizing software and hardware tests for large system-on-chips (SoCs), and simplifying test sets for hardware emulation… Read More
