| With the recent flurry of activity in developing new and enhanced languages and methods, what plans does the design and verification industry have for adapting existing or adopting new methodology and process flows? Panelists will provide insights into their organization's initiatives to improve productivity in design and verification, what are the priorities and what are the key foundations on which they will build their flows. Is there one right answer? Are there multiple paths? Some of the issues likely to be covered include:
- · How important are language(s)?
· What is the right level of abstraction?
· Is there a need to design for verification?
· Does the organization have a standard verification methodology and framework?
· What new methods are being adopted: assertion-based verification, coverage-driven verification, transaction-level modeling, constrained-random stimulus generation and hardware/software co-verification?
· Is it feasible to create reactive testbenches?
· Where are the bottlenecks shifting to?
