Questa Clock/Reset Domain Crossing Verification / Mentor Functional Safety Compliance – What’s New in Functional Verification from Mentor: Session 5
June 11, 2020 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
This is the fifth of a 5-part series on “What’s New in Functional Verification from Mentor.” Each session will be presented twice at the times shown above consisting of two half-hour presentations, with Q&A. Please register for the time that is more convenient for you.
Confronting Inevitability: Finding Clock and Reset Issues Before They Find You:
The aggressive clock, reset and power design techniques and methodologies that were once only the domain of bleeding-edge products are common-place today, as driven by market requirements. Errors in clock, reset and power designs are costing projects needless additional thousands if not millions of dollars before getting into production. This session will show how Questa’s clock- and reset-domain crossing solution will help you avoid costly design flaws and accelerate your time to market.
What You Will Learn
- Identify the potential cost or opportunity cost of missed clock or reset domain crossings issues
- Understand the full scope of clock and reset synchronization issues and how to find them
- Recognize the difference between a full solution and a partial one
Mentor + Siemens Provides Solutions and Expertise to Achieve Rapid Safety Compliance:
When verifying safety critical systems, the stakes are raised in ensuring that bugs/defects are not introduced into production with many standards striving for zero defective parts per million. The powerful combination of Mentor’s functional verification and functional safety products together with Siemens’ lifecycle management tools provide built-in guidance and automation helping you navigate the difficult waters of safety compliance.
What You Will Learn
- The three pillars of FuSa and activities required to demonstrate the achievement of functional safety
- A functional safety methodology to efficiently and systematically execute your safety lifecycle
- How Mentor and Siemens solutions automate and guide a project team through the challenges of a safety lifecycle
