In my previous post on Breker activities at the upcoming Design Automation Conference (DAC) in Austin, I mentioned two verification panels. I’d like to dig a bit deeper on these two panels to encourage EDACafe reader to attend them and also mention a third of possible interest to verification engineers. As a member of this year’s DAC Pavilion Panel Committee, I have a vested interest in seeing a great turnout.
The two panels are:
- “Organizational and Management Solutions to the Verification Crisis” pavilion panel to be held 1:30-2:30pm on Tuesday, June 4 in the DAC Pavilion Theater (Booth 509)
- “Disruptive Verification Technologies: Can They Really Make a Difference?” technical panel to be held 9:00-10:30am on Wednesday, June 5 in Room 16AB
Although DAC has distinct committees for pavilion and technical panels, in practice these two groups work closely together to ensure a strong overall program. The two verification panels above were carefully coordinated so that they address complementary aspects of the “crisis” in which verification is taking up an ever-larger percentage of chip and system development time.
