Video: DAC 2011 Update From NextOp CEO Yunshan Zhu

At DAC 2011 I had the opportunity to reconnect with Yunshan Zhu, the CEO of NextOp Software. After a quick update on their flagship product (BugScope 3.0), Yunshan shares his observations on how assertion synthesis can complement the Universal Verification methodology (UVM), plus he reveals specific application spaces where they have seen BugScope be particularly effective.

Note: in case you were wondering, the NextOp booth was as busy as ever -- we were lucky to squeeze in this shoot among the steady parade of prospects coming in and out of their demo suites.

Happy Assertion Synthesizing!
