Coverage Analysis in Questa Visualizer

Coverage Analysis in Questa Visualizer

Questa coverage

Coverage analysis is how you answer the question “have I tested enough?” You need some way to quantify the completeness of our testing; coverage is how you do that. Right out of the gate this is a bit deceptive. To truly cover a design our tests would need to cover every accessible state and state transition. The complexity of that task… Read More


Fast EM/IR Analysis, a new EDA Category

Fast EM/IR Analysis, a new EDA Category

IR Drop min

I’ve watched the SPICE market segment into multiple approaches, like: Classic SPICE, Parallel SPICE, FastSPICE and Analog FastSPICE. In a similar fashion the same thing just happened to EM/IR analysis, because after years of waiting we finally have a different approach to EM/IR analysis that works at the top-level of … Read More

VPX Vector DSP Core Data Types

Whether we realize it or not, everyday applications we use depend on data gathered by sensors. We can bet that pretty much every application uses at least a couple of different types of sensors, if not more. That is because different types of sensors are better suited to collect data depending on the application, the environment … Read More

A Solid Methodology is the Margin of Victory

Designing complex systems is difficult. It seems to me that the difficulty has increased at a rate that is more exponential than linear with design complexity. Some version of Moore’s law for design is at work. The challenges for advanced designs just seem to keep mounting. A new item that is top of mind for many executives is the talent… Read More

Tuesday at DAC I had the pleasure of attending the Design on Cloud Theatre where experts from Siemens EDA gave an update on what they’ve been offering to IC and systems designers. I remember attending a cloud presentation from Craig Johnson in 2021, so I was keen to note what had changed in the past 12 months.

Formal at System Level. Innovation in Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 07-27-2022 at 6:00 am

Innovation New

Formal verification at the SoC level has long seemed an unapproachable requirement. Maybe we should change our approach. Could formal be practical on a suitable abstraction of the SoC? Paul Cunningham (GM, Verification at Cadence), Raúl Camposano (Silicon Catalyst, entrepreneur, former Synopsys CTO and now Silvaco CTO) and… Read More

Google Cloud vendor of the year min

In 2022 using the cloud for EDA tasks is a popular topic, and at DAC this year I could see a bigger presence from the cloud hardware vendors in the exhibit area, along with a growing stampede of EDA companies. Tuesday at DAC there was a luncheon with experts from Siemens EDA, Google and AMD talking about surge compute. I already knew Michael… Read More

Radar Trends

In the flood of CPU and GPU announcements in pursuit of new technology advances, it is easy to lose track of another kind of platform – DSPs. Digital signal processors, once a niche platform for specialized applications, are now front and center in some of the hottest technologies. Because their strength in signal processing has… Read More
