At DVCon 2011 Next Week

Comments(0)Filed under: Functional Verification, OVM, Coverage-Driven Verification, multi-language, SystemC, techtorial, OOP, AOP, OSCI, EDA, DVcon, industry insights, Incisive, ABV, Mixed Signal Verification, TLM, Mixed-Signal, formal, EDA360, formal verification

Next week my colleagues and I will be at DVCon 2011 in force, ready to regale you with technical papers, panels, and techtorials covering the full range of functional, assertion-based, mixed-signal, and transaction-level verification topics.  If you are within a tank of gas or a Southwest flight of San Jose, going to DVCon is a no brainer.  I guarantee that you WILL learn something -- whether it's from the aforementioned events, or just chatting with other attendees who are struggling with verification challenges similar to yours.

Still on the fence?  Need something to prove to your boss this conference is no boondoggle?  Here are some images and articles from past DVCons to give you a flavor of the proceedings, and the high caliber of engineers you will meet there:
