Smaller designs face greater risk of respines

Verification effort continues to increase, resulting in a double-digit increase in the peak number of verification engineers required on a project.Another is that the industry is maturing its verification processes as witnessed by the verification technology adoption trends.

However, the Mentor Graphics survey also found that smaller designs are less likely to adopt what are generally viewed as industry best verification practices and techniques. Similarly, we found that smaller designs tend to have a smaller ratio of peak verification engineers to peak designers.

Perhaps having fewer available verification resources, combined with the lack of adoption of more advanced verification techniques, could account for fewer small designs achieving first silicon success. The data suggest that this might be one contributing factor. It’s certainly something worth considering.
