We're excited to report that next week's annual CDNLive! event in Munich will feature many papers of interest to end-users of Incisive Formal Verifier ("IFV"), Incisive Enterprise Verifier ("IEV"), or anyone interested in either "pure formal" verification, integrated formal analysis and simulation verification, and assertion-based verification (“ABV”).
An overview of the conference with info on how to register is here: http://www.cadence.com/cdnlive/eu/2010/pages/agenda.aspx
Naturally CDNLive will cover *all* aspects of Cadence's technologies and methodologies, including more information on the new EDA360 initiative. And in general, you can't go wrong by following the whole Functional Verification track. However, Team Verify can not resist drawing your attention to the following specific papers & techtorials focused on formal and multi-engine ABV.
Tuesday May 4
13:30-15:30, Functional Verification Techtorial Part 1: IEV (Incisive Enterprise Verifier) - Formal Contributions to Verification Closure
Wednesday May 5
12:00-12:30, FV04: Verification of MSP430 uController clock & power FSM-communication using advanced IEV toolbox features -- presented by Texas Instruments
13:45 - 14:45, FV05&FV06: Cadence's Functional Verification Roadmap
Expectations alert: while this presentation will have a few high-level notes on the IFV & IEV roadmap, consider it more of a roadmap briefing on the whole verification product line. Please feel free to ask our colleages for a more in-depth, IFV/IEV-specific roadmap review offline.
Thursday May 6
8:45-9:15, FV07: Formal verification of a globally-asynchronous / locally-synchronous (GALS) bridge, using Cadence® Incisive® Formal Verifier (IFV) with a PSL assertion based verification IP (ABVIP) -- presented by STMicroelectronics
11:45-12:15, FV12: Techniques for Applying the Temporal Strength of SystemVerilog Assertions to Specification Level Features -- presented by Freescale Semiconductor
12:15-12:45, FV13: Combining Formal Verification and Simulation to verify a complex LCD controller -- presented by
Team Verify hopes this summary helps you get the ost out of the show -- and during & after the event please share with us your impressions and feedback.
Happy bug hunting!
