Harry Foster, Chief Scientist Verification for the IC Verification Solutions division of Mentor, A Siemens Business, will present:
FPGA Verification Maturity: A Quantitative Analysis
on Wednesday morning, February 12, 2020.
While multiple studies on IC/ASIC functional verification trends have been published, there have been no studies specifically focused on FPGA verification trends. To address this dearth of information, Harry presents the results from a recent large industry study on functional verification. The findings from this study provide invaluable insight into the state of today’s FPGA market in terms of both design and verification trends. What is unique about this study is that for the first time the impact of this growing complexity has been quantified in terms verification effectiveness and effort.
