Rapid Evolution For Verification Plans
By Brian Bailey, Semiconductor Engineering
While many companies do have verification plans, demands on those plans are changing faster than most companies can evolve.
But have the prime objectives changed? “The fundamentals of verification planning have not changed,” asserts Rob van Blommestein, head of marketing for OneSpin Solutions. “The chip development team must extract from the design specification all the features to be verified, and enter them in the verification plan, identify which tools will be used to verify which features, annotate the verification plan with the results from all the tools, and collect coverage results from all the tools to make an accurate assessment of verification thoroughness.”
