About every two years, Mentor, A Siemens Business, commissions Wilson Research Group to conduct a broad, vendor-independent study of design verification practices around the world. I plan to present the findings from this year’s study in an upcoming web seminar on October 10, 2018 at 8am (PDT).In addition to presenting the trend data, I intent to provide an analytical interpretation of what we are seeing for the key trends. I believe that the findings from this year’s study should provide you invaluable insight into the state of today’s IC/ASIC and FPGA markets in terms of both design and verification trends.You can register for this web seminar by visiting The 2018 Wilson Research Group ASIC and FPGA Functional Verification Study. Also, in case you are unable to attend this web seminar, a recorded version of it will be made available in the future out on the Verification Academy. In addition, we plan to start the blog series from this year’s study in the next few weeks.
