Title:Time Equals Money:  Faster Time to Market with Formal Verification

Abstract :  It’s easy to tabulate and scrutinize project costs due to human and capital resources.   However, the financial cost of being late to market is potentially orders of magnitude greater than the up-front investment cost and thus poses a much greater risk to profitability.   Mentor Graphics will examine how formal verification helps project teams improve certainty in their semiconductor development project timelines and satisfy their time-to-market requirements.

Biography : Mark has been involved in the design & verification of complex SoC’s for over 15 years with positions in a number of commercial and mil-aero companies.   He has worked in his current role, as an applications engineer with Mentor Graphics for the past 11 years with expertise in formal and assertion based verification.  Mark holds a BEng in Digital Systems Engineering from the University of the West of England, in Bristol, UK.
