Reducing Block, Chip, and System Design Risk with a "Plan-to-Closure" Verification Approach
This paper describes an advanced verification flow from Cadence that is scalable from block- to chip- to system-level designs, and takes the project team all the way from plan to closure. It meets the verification needs of today's high-capacity, high-complexity designs and the extreme capacity/complexity designs of tomorrow. Using this flow not only injects urgently needed predictability into project schedules but also increases productivity by optimizing engineering and verification resources. It further increases the quality of the final product while reducing overall project risk.
