The complexity of on-chip interconnect and the relentless growth in software size will drive the move to a four-stage verification process as well as the increased use of formal techniques to speed up SoC-level testing, Mentor Graphics verification specialist Mark Olen claimed at the Verification Futures conference.
Valor additions aim to deliver shopfloor data to PCB ERP systems in real time... for the first time. And could boost ROI beyond 70%.
Mentor's new version of its RTOS targets once high-cost flexibility with secure and reliable in-operation upgrades and app swap-outs for medical, industrial and smart energy.
The one-day conference series features the latest innovations from many verification vendors in separate UK, France and Germany editions.
