The shrinking time-to-market windows and design complexity growth is the reality we enjoy each day in all segments of electronic design. Structured metric driven verification has been used to manage these pressures addressing schedule predictability, engineers’ productivity and design quality. In this tutorial, we will show how data-driven enhancements for simulation, formal, emulation and verification management improve productivity. Leveraging the latest data analytics technologies, like machine learning, inside verification tools is delivering measurable improvements in productivity. Examples of real designs (across multiple segments) and results will be used to illustrate the early promise of an even more efficient data-driven verification future.

Attendee will learn:

- Why data-driven verification will bring productivity improvements
- Where data-driven techniques are already being applied and their impact
- How data-driven verification can impact all verification engines
- What challenges data-driven verification creates for verification management and automation
