Cadence is committed to keeping design teams highly productive. A range of support offerings and processes helps Cadence users focus on reducing time-to-market and achieving silicon success. Overview
- Drives complete verification process from planning to closure
- Enables reporting and dashboards for management-level tracking of defined project milestones
- Analyzes and ranks tests to improve regression efficiency and optimize farm utilization
- Shortens overall failure turnaround time to optimize bug-closure productivity
- Reduces overall regression environment maintenance by automating execution and results aggregation within and across teams, farms, and sites
- Provides objective feedback about verification completeness against the plan, enabling data-driven schedule and resource decisions
- Aggregates into a single intuitive interface verification closure metric across the Xcelium, JasperGold, Palladium, and Protium platforms
- High Availability feature supports multi-user, multi-engine, multi-project, and multi-site designs simultaneously
In 2004, the vManager product pioneered verification planning and management with the industry’s first commercial solution to automate the end-to-end management of complex verification projects—from goal setting to closure. Now in its fourth generation, with the introduction of the High Availability feature, the Cadence® vManager™ Metric-Driven Signoff Platform provides capabilities tailored for verification on top of scalable and robust data management technology. The vManager Platform propels verification from a simulation-centric individual tool activity to team-based verification productivity, spans multiple disciplines and geographies, and is architected for expansion into the cloud.
The vManager platform automates the verification process at the block, chip, system, and project level, automating management of activities from spec to execution to signoff. Easy-to-adopt regression management and failure triage features improve productivity, eliminating time-consuming and tedious data organization tasks. Built-in automation for creating reports, emailing results, and generating debug data provide even further productivity, ensuring engineering resources are spent solving real design and verification problems.
Users can enable closed-loop verification by utilizing the verification plan (vPlan) capabilities of the vManager platform. A verification-specific set of authoring capabilities includes directly connecting the vPlan to spec documents as well as point-and-click mapping of verification metrics to device features. The vPlan can be annotated with data generated by engines within the Cadence Verification Suite, including the Cadence Xcelium™ Logic Simulator, Cadence JasperGold® Formal Verification Platform, Cadence Palladium™ Emulation Platform, and Cadence Protium™ Prototyping Platforms. The vManager platform also boasts connection with OpsHub Integration Manager, a commercial application lifecycle management (ALM) solution, enabling it to synchronize defect and requirements data with third-party systems like JIRA, JAMA, and Doors. Using this approach, users can eliminate subjectivity associated with complex and disparate sets of verification, requirements, and defect data.
