On May 9, 2013, John Cooley’s DeepChip site published a DVCon trip report we put together at Real Intent. Here are some of the items covered: Wally Rhine’s keynote, verification project stats, System Verilog, ad-hoc techniques, coverage and power measurement, formal tools, UVM, CDC, Harry Foster, ARM, Intel, John Goodenough, Gary Smith, “AHA”, design breaking, no mention of C nor SystemC, Design to Help Verification, RTL, instrumenting, when to do formal?, assertion synthesis, no mention of Specman “e”, plus details from Stu Sutherland’s talk on X-optimism, X-pessimism, the 15 X sources, how X’s mess each with constructs with assignments with operators, and three different ways to “fix” the X problem; plus the DVcon attendance numbers plus who exhibited there, too.
The report is quite long, and you can see it here or by scrolling the embedded frame below. Enjoy!
