FPGA Verification Technology Adoption Trends

FPGAs offer real value in verification when they are deployed to help build a significant part of the system or used in multiple instances that allow a design to be re-spun until the functionality is correctly verified. The unique advantage they bring as a verification tool is that FPGAs are able to run closer to system [...]

EZ-VIP Package for Enhanced Testbench Productivity

Mentor Graphics announced the availability of the EZ-VIP productivity package for ASIC and FPGA Verification teams using Questa® Verification IP (QVIP). This package increases productivity by reducing the time spent, instantiating, configuring and connecting up a QVIP testbench.This means verification teams have more time available to use QVIP to verify that their design is functionally [...]

FPGA Verification done the smart way – the Bluepearl way!

Over the last half-a-decade, FPGAs have been becoming larger and larger in capacity and narrow/deep in technology nodes.  Given the cost advantages of FPGA, various companies that were erstwhile ASIC-only design houses have taken FPGA as the first step to production and/or prototyping. As learnt in the ASIC domain, as designers’ ability to push more logic into a single chip [...]
