Archived Webinar: UVM Sequences: Best Practices for Efficiency and Reuse
13 Nov 2012       [ Register ]
One of the primary goals of the UVM is to reduce the cost and burden of writing tests. This is accomplished by providing an abstract test definition interface in the form of sequences. Subsequently, much of the complexity involved with driving and monitoring the DUT is absorbed in UVM verification components (UVCs). This webinar will use the UVM Reference Flow so that you can recreate everything you learn in your own environment.

Archived Webinar: Integrating Chip Verification into an ISO26262 Traceability Flow
06 Nov 2012       [ Register ]
This webinar will show how to combine a metric-driven verification flow typically used in functional verification with an ISO26262 requirements management flow. The solution entails electronically transferring requirements into the verification flow, and then managing the verification effort independently from there.

Archived Webinar: UVM SystemVerilog in a Multi-Language SoC World: UVM-ML
25 Oct 2012       [ Register ]
While the Accellera Systems Initiative UVM standard is defined for SystemVerilog, its architecture can support multi-language verification environments. Every SoC has some mix of models coded to IEEE and ANSI language standards. With 4 years of experience in OVM and UVM production verification environments, and 10 years of eRM expertise, Cadence has developed a set of open-source reference libraries and best practices for implementing multi-language UVM. This webinar will use the Cadence UVM multi-language (UVM-ML) contribution on UVMWorld.

Archived Webinar: 5 Steps to Your First Power Shutoff (PSO) Verification
16 Oct 2012       [ Register ]
The 5 steps outlined in this webinar provide a proven approach that both reduces the effort to verify a PSO domain while also increasing the quality of the resulting design. This webinar uses the Incisive Verification Kit (supplied with each Incisive Enterprise Simulator XL installation) so that you can recreate everything you learn in your own environment. The example can also serve as a model and reference for your own first PSO implementation and verification.

Archived Webinar: Is SystemVerilog the Future of Analog Modeling?
18 Sep 2012       [ Register ]
A significant speed-up in simulation performance can be achieved by replacing the analog portions of a design with functionally equivalent real-number models using real/wreal functionality in Verilog-AMS and/or SystemVerilog to achieve a 100–500x performance boost for top-level SoC verification.
