Zocalo Tech President Covers Challenges and Opportunities of Enabling Assertion-Based Verification (ABV)


Howard L. Martin, Zocalo Tech’s president, spoke with EDACafé about the challenges and opportunities for enabling widespread acceptance of Assertion-Based Verification (ABV).  ABV is considered the technology that can have the most impact for reducing re-spins of complex chips.

In his interview, Mr. Martin makes the following points.

  • Assertion use today is mainly ad hoc and dependent on the skill and desire of engineers to use assertions.
  • ABV use requires the use of assertions as part of the verification methodology.
  • Implementing ABV is a major challenge and there’s no magic bullet to make ABV happen overnight.
  • Projects need automation for creating and managing assertions cost effectively.
  • Management needs metrics to even consider ABV.
