Our industry has experienced remarkable breakthroughs in computing, networking, and communication technology in recent years. Yet, it is the convergence of these technologies that is driving the next big thing in innovation related to IoT and autonomous systems. And it is also driving the need for new approaches to verify today’s complex systems. In this keynote, Harry Foster shares a holistic view of the next big wave in verification.
This keynote highlights how new growth segments, such as Automotive, IoT, Networking, 5G Mobile, etc. are fundamentally changing the requirements for verification. The keynote will emphasize how addressing the SoC verification, software bring-up and validation needed for these segments will change the nature of verification technologies and solutions.
Closing code coverage in RTL is one of the toughest verification challenges and moving to High-Level Synthesis (HLS) hasn’t made coverage closure any easier. This workshop highlights the fundamental difference between closing coverage for software and HLS models, and how Catapult Coverage from Mentor, A Siemens Business lets you close RTL coverage on the HLS model.
