Archived webinar - Migrating from VMM to the UVM
08 Dec 2010       [ Register ]
With the UVM 1.0 release around the corner, this is the time to plan a migration from OVM, VMM, and custom methodologies. The Accellera Verification IP Technical Subcommittee standardized an OVM-VMM interoperability Best Practices guide in July of 2009. Cadence has updated the library associated with the standard to be compatible with the UVM, and donated that back to Accellera. In addition, Cadence has upgraded the OVM-UVM migration script based on real-world customer experience. Attendees will learn about the migration planning requirements by walking through case studies of VMM and OVM migrations as well as Vera RVM to OVM/UVM. These examples will cover both the verification environment and the associated register packages.

Archived webinar - OpenPDK: What is the Goal of this Effort, and What is the Status?
07 Dec 2010       [ Register ]
The industry is calling for a "single source" for EDA enablement. Some solutions want to enforce a particular implementation of a PDK. But this forces the entire EDA industry to comply to the same format and, in most cases, retool to comply. The OpenPDK effort is very different. OpenPDK's goal is an implementation-free, single source for EDA enablement. OpenPDK members are seeking a means to define all of the necessary process information—design rules and device definitions—into a format that can be published once and used by all EDA vendors equally. Hear Cadence and Mentor discuss their views on the OpenPDK effort.

Archived webinar - How To Completely Eliminate SoC Connectivity Bugs (Really!)
30 Nov 2010       [ Register ]
Bugs from incorrect connectivity – whether they’re misconnected IP blocks inside an SoC or erroneous muxing of pad rings – can kill a chip as just easily as more sophisticated functional bugs. With internal connection points surpassing hundreds of thousands of nodes, the traditional approach of assigning detail-oriented summer interns to spot-check connectivity with some dynamic simulations is rapidly losing effectiveness. In this webinar, we’ll show you how to apply formal verification technology to exhaustively prove with 100% mathematical certainty that all of your SoC’s internal and external pad ring connections are completely correct.
