Open Source Processors: Fact Or Fiction?

Open source processors are rapidly gaining mindshare, fuelled in part by early successes of RISC-V, but that interest frequently is accompanied by misinformation based on wishful thinking and a lack of understanding about what exactly open source entails. This article elaborates what are the facts and fictions involved in open source processors. Read More To [...]

5 Ways to Shift Performance Testing Left

Performance testing is often a barrier to accelerating software delivery. Much like testing other non-functional requirements, application performance has traditionally been measured late in the software development lifecycle, as a finished application and a production-like testing environment is necessary to get valid performance results. This article outlines how to start shifting performance testing left. Read [...]

Want to improve quality? Give ethical hackers access to your code

When ethical hackers have access to a product's code and internal structure, they can focus their attention on deep, mission-critical concerns. This is far more efficient than spending valuable time looking for surface vulnerabilities to gain entry. This article outlines how to improve quality by using penetration testing. Read More Understand how T&VS Penetration Testing services help [...]

An Important Next Step for Portable Stimulus Adoption

Many observers see PSS approach as the next major advance in verification beyond the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM), and the next step higher in abstraction for specifying verification intent. The basic idea is to create high-level models that can be used by EDA tools to generate test cases automatically. This article shows how to successfully [...]

An Automated Approach to Regression Testing

Testing every single thing isn't feasible, so regression testing should be holistic in verification while focused in scope. A good goal is to ensure no regression issue is introduced into a critical business flow. This article shows how automated testing approach can reduce regression issues.

Speed up design and verification with a smaller layout

Today’s large full-chip integrated circuit (IC) layouts can be very frustrating. Just viewing them requires powerful computers with substantial memory, and they are not always readily available. Saving part of a full-chip layout as a separate layout allows engineers to focus only on the area that is relevant to the specific task at hand. This [...]
