Summary form only given. Although more and more engineering resources are being focused on verification, most of the effort is expended on re-simulating what has already been simulated. And once the effort is through, only 20% of the state space has been verified, at best. Verification today is a frustrating, open-loop process that often doesn't end even after the integrated circuit ships. In response, the whole verification methodology infrastructure is undergoing major changes - from adoption of assertion-based verification, coverage-driven verification, to new approaches in test bench generation/optimization, integrated hardware acceleration and more. In this session, Robert Hum will explore these and other new solutions and innovations in functional verification technology,and discuss the impact of these changes on the EDA industry.
