Webinar: New Advanced Techniques for Reset Domain Crossing (RDC) Analysis

March 14 @ 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Siemens March 14 2024


Designers increasingly use complex reset signaling architectures to meet high-performance, low-latency, and low-power requirements. Specifically, independent reset domains are created by complex reset sequences, reset circuitry, and the intermixing of IPs with different reset schemas, power-management domains, and security domains or functionality. This increase in reset signaling complexity is creating new RDC verification challenges that are straining “gen one” RDC solutions.

In this webinar we will show new, advanced RDC techniques, methodology, and automation for:

  • How to hierarchically characterize and structure reset (and clock) domain models for rapid analysis and re-use of IP-level RDC information as the design grows
  • AI/ML-based automation that pinpoints where to place synchronizers, and in parallel to aggressively minimize false positives (e.g. automatically minimizing “noise”)
  • Creating custom synchronizers for proprietary synchronization styles
  • Waiver management flows to efficiently address violations and waiver tracking throughout the project
  • Considerations for low power designs with UPF

What You Will Learn: 

  • A short review of the basics of Clock and Reset Domain Crossing issues that may cause meta-stability, glitch or data coherency.
  • What’s the right methodology for a comprehensive RDC analysis?
  • Questa RDC solutions

Who Should Attend: 

  • Design Engineers, CAD Engineers, Project Leads who are using/supporting static verification flows.
  • Working knowledge of Verilog, SystemVerilog, or VHDL will presumed

What/Which Products are Covered:  

  • Questa RDC
