Speaker:Asi Lifshitz (CTO)
Presentation Title:What You See Is What You Get Verification with Vtool
Abstract:Functional verification is evolving slowly. Apart from being adopted across the industry, UVM technology is not a a true step forward from the 15+ years old Specman.

The next leap in functional verification has to include a higher abstraction level code-base creation. Vtool makes use of Visual Orientation and WYSIWYG concepts for better productivity and reuse.

  • A code editor is not enough to create and maintain millions of lines of code
  • Images and flowcharts must be used
  • Vtool applies a novel concept of Visual creation
