The Cadence Academic Network helps build strong relationships between academia and industry, and promotes the proliferation of leading-edge technologies and methodologies at universities renowned for their engineering and design excellence.
A huge knowledge exchange platform for academia to network with industry. We are looking for academic speakers to talk about their research to the industry attendees at the Academic Track at CDNLive EMEA and Silicon Valley.
Riad Ben Mouhoub, a staff engineer at PMC Sierra, works on a team that develops chips for the enterprise storage market. In his role, he's well acquainted with system-level verification challenges : increasing design size and complexity, time-to-market pressures, and the fact that verification cycles can outweigh design times, to name a few. In this short video, Mouhoub explains how implementing the Cadence® Palladium® XP verification computing platform along with Cadence SpeedBridge® Adapters enabled PMC Sierra to test their DUT with real-world data that can't be modeled on a testbench, achieve bring-up in less than a week with a runtime more than 10,000X faster than a simulation-based approach, and find critical bugs that a pure simulation approach would have missed.
