If it’s February, that means the chip design verification community is gearing up for the annual DVCon. This year it will be held Monday, February 27, through Thursday, March 2. As always, it will be a jam-packed week full of tutorials, paper sessions and panels. And, of course, the Expo with 32 of the leading verification companies showcasing their tools will be a highlight.
The stage will be set Monday by conference sponsor and host Accellera with three standards-related tutorials on portable stimulus, universal verification methodology (UVM) and SystemC. An Accellera lunch will update attendees on working groups and an outlook for the future. The lunch will include an awards ceremony as well.
Capping Monday’s activities will be the popular Booth Crawl in the expo area from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.
