The BIG Change in SoC Verification You Don’t Know About

March 21st, 2013 by Graham Bell

Ed Sperling, Editor-in-Chief of System-Level Design recently did a follow-on video interview after his Experts At The Table: Verification Strategies roundtable.  Here below, you can read Ed’s introduction to the video interview and the question he posed to Pranav Ashar, CTO at Real Intent.  To hear Pranav’s answer, click on the embedded video (which starts at 3:56).

“When you think about the most complex SoCs that are going out the door these days, at 28 and 20nm, it’s a wonder that they still work.  A good part of the reason is that they are verified very effectively.  Verification traditionally has been 50% to 70% of the NRE that goes into designing these chips and that has not changed.  But, the size of the chips and the complexity has grown significantly.  So here to discuss what is going on in verification today we have:

  • Janick Bergeron, verification fellow at Synopsys
  • Harry Foster, chief verification scientist at Mentor Graphics
  • Pranav Ashar, chief technology officer at Real Intent
  • Rai Brinkmann, president and CEO of OneSpin Solutions
  • Tom Anderson, vice president of marketing at Breker Verification Systems

So Pranav, from your perspective what is the big change or big changes that have happened in verification in the past couple of years as we have rising complexity in a chip?”
