This course introduces you to using the Palladium® XP I/II verification computing platform for accelerating the verification of designs. This course is tailored based on customer requirements. Topics may include preparing a design for acceleration, improving simulation acceleration performance, creating synthesizable testbenches, an introduction to transaction-based and UVM acceleration, and design debugging using Palladium XP I/II. This course commonly uses the customer’s design as a lab platform.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Compile, run, and debug designs in Palladium XP I/II, in the following modes: simulation acceleration, transaction-based acceleration, UVM acceleration, and synthesizable testbench acceleration.
- Understand and improve simulation acceleration performance.
