Portable Stimulus: Are You Ready for a Verification Revolution?

September 26, 2019

Register For This Seminar

Fremont, CA – Sep 26, 2019
11:30 AM – 2:30 PM US/Pacific


Portable Stimulus (PSS): A new language and a new methodology with great promise in verification productivity and quality; but requires adoption of new tools, user re-education and infrastructure retooling– all potentially disruptive and costly endeavors. Is there a way to adopt this revolutionary innovation incrementally? Reuse can be the Evolution that enables the PSS Revolution.


11:30–12:15 Lunch and check-in
12:30–01:00 PSS: What, Why and How – Experts from Mentor who are leading participants of the Accellera PSS Working Group will provide a detailed look at how to use the new standard to specify your verification intent at an abstract level. Learn how this makes you more productive in creating reusable verification scenarios across simulation, HW/SW co-simulation, emulation, and FPGA prototyping based verification platforms.
01:00–01:20 PSS Reuse Requires a New Way of Thinking – What if there was a way to adopt this revolutionary innovation incrementally? Leveraging existing verification infrastructure, including existing UVM/SV test benches and verification IP; enabling the benefits of PSS incrementally as the workforce gets up to speed.
01:20–02:00 PSS Examples: Going from IP to SoC with Questa inFact – Learn how you to apply Portable Stimulus technology in Questa inFact today to boost simulation regression efficiency by accelerating coverage closure! You’ll also see examples on how create PSS model reuse for more unique tests more quickly through all levels.
02:15–02:30 Close Remarks and Prize Drawing
