With more and more software content in chips—embedded or application level—RTL design and verification is no longer the main bottleneck to a faster tapeout schedule. System integration, including embedded software development and verification are rapidly becoming the key areas to focus on with regard to cost and product delivery schedules. Defining and implementing verification intelligence at the system level is paramount to achieving RTL closure. This webinar provides design and verification engineers insights into advanced methods applied to achieve RTL closure. It delivers insights into accelerating UVM-based system level simulations with requisite functional coverage metrics. Attendees will get an overview of how to apply leading edge high-performing UVM-based solutions using hardware acceleration and standard verification methodologies to conduct hardware/software co-verification, and shorten system-level design and verification cycles.

What registrant will learn:

  • Principles of Metric Driven Verification with hardware acceleration
  • How to apply functional coverage with acceleration
  • Learn about the Cadence Kit to jump-start acceleration efforts

Who should attend:

  • OVM/UVM simulation users
  • System Engineers & Managers
  • SystemVerilog or e users
  • Hardware assisted verification users
  • Verification managers & engineers
