The Universal/Open Verification Methodologies have greatly streamlined the RTL verification process for SoCs. But at the same time, the amount of software necessary to integrate the SoC into a working device has exploded, making the software integration and debug problem the new bottleneck in delivering a working system. Software developers need a pre-silicon simulation platform that is accurate enough to reflect the subtleties of the SoC design’s RTL, yet fast enough to execute meaningful code paths. The answer, we will argue in this Webinar, is hardware simulation acceleration integrated into a solid UVM/OVM verification environment. We will describe at length how to achieve this integration.
Who should attend:

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