DVCon 2009 - Day 1

Comments(0)Filed under: Verification methodology , OVM, IES, VIP, Cadence VIP portfolio, Levent Caglar, DVcon, IES-XL

As promised, here is my photo blog of Day 1 of DVCon, focused on the OVM Multi-Language tutorial and the show floor.  While I've added descriptive captions to the photos, here are some quick takes:

* Adam, Brett, and the others at the OVM Multi-Language tutorial reported that the session was very interactive, with a lot of great Q&A that indicated a clear need for this enhancement to the methodology.

* FAQ: how was the traffic on show floor?  Answer: in my unscientific opinion the traffic was noticibly lower than prior years, but not ruinously so.

* In past DVCons, 98% of the people I spoke to in the booth were doing verification.  This year, the ratio seemed more like a 50-50 split between design and verification.  (Of course, I recommend taking this with a grain of salt -- I guesstimate I personally spoke to a dozen attendees, so the this data is purely anecdotal, and it's only Day 1.)
