AUSTIN, TEXAS, September 9, 2002 - Verify 2002, a series of eight educational seminars on Assertion-Based Verification in the Intelligent Testbench for SOC Design, kicks off Wednesday, October 3, here at the Renaissance Austin Hotel. The series continues through November 5 at select cities throughout the United States and Canada, and travels to Munich, Germany, Thursday, October 10.
Each seminar includes two featured speakers. Harry Foster, chairman of Accellera's Formal Language Committee and author of "Principles of Verifiable RTL" and the soon-to-be-released "Assertion-based Design," will present a tutorial on why, where and how to use assertions in integrated circuit (IC) designs. Anders Nordstrom, director of engineering at PacketDNA and a member of the IEEE 1364 Verilog Standards Committee and the Accellera SystemVerilog Committee, will take participants through the evolution of verification methodologies, and provide a real-world example of verification methodologies associated with advanced telecom designs.
This year's dates and locations are:
- Thursday, October 3 -- Austin, Texas
- Thursday, October 10 -- Munich, Germany
- Tuesday, October 15 -- San Jose, California
- Thursday, October 17 -- San Diego, California
- Tuesday, October 22 -- Westford, Massachusetts
- Thursday, October 24 -- Ottawa, Canada
- Tuesday, October 29 -- Denver, Colorado
- Tuesday, November 5 -- Santa Clara, California
These educational seminars have been designed to help electronic engineers learn how to incorporate and use assertion-based languages and tools in their design flows and advance towards an intelligent testbench solution.
Agenda sessions include:
- "An Assertion Methodology for Emulation" by Axis Systems
- "Transaction Level Hardware and Software Verification for SoCs" by CoWare
- "Using Memory-Based Assertions for System Verification" by Denali Software
- "Functional Coverage and High-Level SystemC Modeling for RTL Verification" by Forte Design Systems
- "Debugging for the Intelligent Testbench" by Novas Software
- "Intelligent Resource Management with SunGrid Engine" by Sun Microsystems
- "An Assertion-Based Formal Methodology for Functional Closure" by Verplex Systems
