Title:SoC Design Verification using 3rd party IPs – Challenges & Guidelines


This presentation is about the verification challenges if a given SoC has design/verification components that are sourced from 3rd party vendor(s).

It covers the important considerations from verification planning to pre-silicon through tape-out.It also covers few guidelines that would help to address the issues that may potentially compromise the verification quality.

Key Points:

  • Interoperability of Vendor IPs.
  • Test planning considerations.
  • Coverage planning considerations.


  • 14+ years of work experience in multimillion gates ASIC/SOC functional verification. Familiar with standard ASIC design flow from design concept to tape-out. Have participated in many multi-million gate SOC tape-outs.
  • Has worked hands-on with the development of module/chip-level test plans and verification infrastructure encompassing state of art Verification IPs.
