The Quest for Bugs: “Correct by Design!”

The Quest for Bugs: “Correct by Design!”
by Bryan Dickman on 07-04-2021 at 6:00 am

Title Image

In this article we take an objective view of Virtual Prototyping from the engineering lens and the “quest to find bugs”. In this instance we discuss the avoidance of bugs in terms of architecting complex ASICs to be “correct by design”.

AI Challenges

It is not surprising to find out that other areas of human endeavour, beyond semiconductor… Read More
