Cadence Incisive Specman and Enterprise Manager help Siemens Drive Technologies ASIC Design Team Stay on Schedule with a Metric-Driven Verification Methodology
Siemens achieves aggressive quality goals and finishes project ahead of schedule using Cadence metric-driven verification technologies

Siemens Drive Technologies is the world's leading supplier of products, systems, applications, and services for the entire drive train with electrical and mechanical components and motion control systems for production machinery as well as machine tools. Recently, the Siemens ASIC design team embarked upon a critical new project that involved changing existing modules to develop an ARM-based system-on-chip (SoC) solution for encoder applications. The team faced several verification challenges right from the start—they had to meet aggressive targets for both quality and timeline while also building an all-encompassing chip-level verification plan that covered both hardware and software features and addressed real-life use cases.

Advanced Cadence Incisive verification solutions helped Siemens implement a metric-driven verification methodology that enabled them to track and manage various state-of-the-art verification technologies in a single, top-level verification plan. The new methodology provided “total coverage” over the entire functionality of the ASIC and kept the Siemens project on track.
