There has been a remarkable acceleration in the adoption of advanced verification methodologies, languages and new standards. This is true across all types of IC design and geographic regions. Designers and verification engineers are surprisingly open to new approaches to keep pace with the relentless rise in design density. They are looking beyond simply increasing the volume of verification to instead using advanced techniques to improve the velocity of verification.
The result is design teams have not lost ground on meeting schedule goals or first-pass silicon success even as design complexity has grown. Now the focus is shifting to appreciably improving those metrics while shrinking verification costs.
Wally Rhines, Chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics, will discuss the state of verification past, present and future. After examining the results from a leading verification survey, he’ll look at how advanced techniques are taking hold in mainstream design. Rhines will then offer his insights on where verification needs to evolve to ensure continued improvement.
Wally Rhines is not only my favorite EDA CEO, he is also one of the most inspirational speakers in EDA, so you don’t want to miss this one.
