2022 Wilson Research Study – The Current Trends in ASIC Design Verification Technology pt. 2 of 2

By Blake Snodgrass

An increase in the complexity of designs has led to the adoption of more advanced technology in verification. This is helping companies increase their efficiency and keep the cost reasonable as they meet the needs for more customized products. With many new technologies becoming available, engineers need to focus on solutions that meet their needs effectively.

I’m your host, Joe Hupcey, a Verification Product Technologist, and today I’m joined by Harry Foster, Chief Scientist Verification at Siemens EDA. He is also the Co-Founder and Executive Editor of the Verification Academy. We’ll continue our discussion on the findings of the 2022 Wilson Research Group Functional Verification study.

In this episode, you’ll learn about current trends in the adoption of verification technology. You’ll also learn about why there has been little change in the languages being used in verification. Additionally, you’ll learn about the impact that verification technology is having on the industry.

What You’ll Learn in this Episode:

  • The reason for accelerated growth in verification technology (00:41)
  • The current state of formal property checking (02:33)
  • The languages being used in ASIC projects (05:09)
  • The impact that verification technologies are
