Challenges: Industry Challenge: Improved EDA competition through standardisation

  • The UCIS standard allows the industry to separate coverage collection from analysis and thus enables the development of new analysis tools. How can we take this improvement to all areas of our verification flows

Integration Testing: Improving IP to SoC verification reuse

  • Verification re-use from IP to SoC offers the promise of reduced costs and reduced time-to-market but the reality if different
  • Given the difference in the objectives for IP and SoC verification – is there anything to re-use?
  • And can we close the gap in languages – from UVM at IP to C at SoC?
