Unit Testing? Consider Taking a Rain Check

Unit tests are a beneficial part of system development processes. They allow the teams to build automated verification that keeps up with the code. With a rain check approach, the advantages of unit testing can be supported by the levels of tests where it is most economical to do so. This article from Techwell describes [...]

SVA Alternative for Complex Assertions

Assertion-based verification has been an integral part of modern-day design verification. Concurrent SVA is a powerful assertion language that expresses the definition of properties in a concise set of notations and rules. This article explains how a relatively simple assertion can be written without SVA with the use of SystemVerilog tasks and provides examples that [...]

Merging Verification with Validation

Verification and validation are two important steps in the creations of electronic systems and over time their roles, but how they play together is changing. In fact, today we are seeing a major opportunity for rethinking this aspect of the flow, which could mean the end of them as separate tasks for many of the [...]

How to Verify Design-For-Testability (DFT) with Hardware Emulation

A DFT App enables execution of complete pattern sets for DFT verification in a reasonable time to shorten the pattern development cycle. Scalable hardware and a compiler enables test pattern validation for large gate-level designs with scan and other test structures embedded into the design. The DFT App is interoperable with other tools by supporting [...]
