Mentor Graphics/Wilson Research Group Functional Verification Study

Smaller designs face greater risk of respins

Research study suggests the maturity of your verification flow determines the likelihood of first-pass success far more than the complexity inherent in design size.

Formal verification

As designs get larger and stress the ability of simulation to exercise an SoC, formal techniques have become essential parts of design and verification.

Verification coverage

Verification coverage attempts to at least provide a partial answer to the question: "How do you know you are finished verifying?" It involves the combination of a number of techniques.

An introduction to System Verilog assertions

Assertions and assertion-based verification (ABV) are hot topics, but many engineering teams remain unfamiliar with the benefits they bring to the design and verification process. This article discusses the rationale behind them, the value they bring across the design and verification process, and offers a step-by-step approach to implementing them.
