The complimentary seminars about various FPGA verification methodologies demonstrate how to use automation tools to accelerate design verification flow
Hardent has announced a collaboration with Electro-Source, Mentor Graphics and Xilinx to present two Advanced FPGA Verification seminars. These seminars will cover topics in verification automation, including FPGA assertions, coverage and UVM Express, using the Questa® Advanced Simulator and ModelSim® products.
The seminars, aimed at FPGA designers, verification engineers and team leaders, will introduce new trends in FPGA verification methodologies and expand upon the uses of Vivado® design flows. With the continued growing complexity of FPGAs, design verification flow has never been more essential to the design process. Thus, FPGA professionals have a greater reliance on verification automation technologies.
“In today’s environment, verifying a design is the most challenging task. While it is one of the major bottlenecks in meeting project deadlines, these efforts cannot be compromised,” said Hardent President Simon Robin, “With more automation comes better results.” The seminars will cover the benefits of the FPGA verification process and Vivado design flows, as presented by a Hardent FPGA specialist. Other topics covered will include methods to reduce time-to-market and how to build effective testbench infrastructure, as well as tips to implement automation into your FPGA verification process.
The two seminars will take place on June 11 and 13, 2013 in Waterloo and Ottawa, respectively. For information about the seminar schedule, please check the attached document.
