The DVClub Europe organized by TVS (slides available on the TVS website) focused on re-use of SoC level verification stimulus. Two papers focused on Graph-Based Verification Techniques which is covered in this paper from DVCon 2012.

The paper describes the application of graph-based verification techniques to a complex and highly configurable display controller IP block.

The main challenges, the technology and the major benefits are developed, including the reuse at system level for basic connectivity verification and more complex system-level tests involving multiple IPs.
