By Christina DePinto

Calling all senior undergraduate students and graduate students of computer engineering, electronics and telecommunications.

This new ASIC Verification course covers the verification process used in validating the functional correctness in today’s complex Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs). This experience will provide the students with real world verification problems to allow them to apply what they learn. Topics include:

  • Fundamentals of simulation based functional verification,
  • Stimulus generation
  • Results checking
  • Coverage
  • Debug
  • Assertions
  • Lab exercises and Projects using Questa

A strong foundation in digital design, computer architecture and HDL programming is recommended.
