Jasper has three seminars coming up in May in Hsinchu (Taiwan), Beijing and Shanghai. These are full-day seminars on how to solve critical verification challenges using state-of-the-art formal technology. Breakfast and lunch will be served.
This full-day tutorial will be given by technical experts for verification experts… Read More
With DATE next week in Dresden, all eyes turn to Germany. Not to be left out, Jasper has a seminar on formal verification coming up on March 19th in the Kempinski Hotel at Munich airport. Unlike most “airport” hotels the Kempinski is indeed right in the heart of the airport. And for those of us who like a good German beer,… Read More
There is an interview in the San Jose Mercury News with Kathryn Kranen, Jasper’s CEO. Of course the Mercury is a general newspaper and can’t expect most of its readership to have a clue what EDA is, never mind formal verification. It’s a similar problem to the one we all have when we try and explain to our families… Read More
At DVCon on Thursday March 1st (St David’s day for any Welsh readers) Jasper is sponsoring lunch from 12pm to 1.30pm. It will take place in the Cascade/Sierra ballrooms.
During lunch there will be a panel discussion Formal Verification from Users’ Perspectives with real users no how they mitigate risk in their designs… Read More
I attended much of the Jasper users’ group a week ago. There were several interesting presentations that I can’t just blog about because companies are shy, and some that would only be of interest if you were a user of Jasper’s products on a daily basis.
But for me the most interesting presentations were several… Read More
Jasper’s Annual User Group Meeting is on November 9th and 10th, in Cupertino California. It will feature users from all over the world sharing the best practices in verification. If you are a user of Jasper’s products then you should definitely plan to attend. This year there is so much good material that the meeting… Read More
Jasper has hired Coby Hanoch as the VP of international sales to manage sales outside of North America. I talked to him last week.
Coby started his career after graduation from the Israeli Institute of Technology as an engineer at National Semiconductor. He quickly ended up in verification where they developed the first random … Read More
OK, let’s face it, when you think of post-silicon debug then formal verification is not the first thing that springs to mind. But once a design has been manufactured, debugging can be very expensive. As then-CEO of MIPS John Bourgoin said at DesignCon 2006, “Finding bugs in model testing is the least expensive and most desired… Read More
Formal verification has grown in importance as designs have grown and it has become necessary to face up to the theoretical impossibility of using simulation to get complete coverage along with the practical impossibility of simulating enough to even get close.
There are a number of solvers for what is called satisfiability (SAT)… Read More
At DAC Jasper presented a seminar with ARM on cache coherency and verification of cache coherency. The seminar is now available online for those of you that missed DAC or missed the seminar itself.
Cache architectures, especially for multi-core architectures, are getting more and more complex. Techniques originally pioneered… Read More
