How the shift towards virtual emulation is reinvigorating pre-silicon testing Mentor Graphics...

Mentor and Ixia recently announced an integration that bridges the gap between pre-silicon verification and post-silicon validation. Ixia’s IxVerify virtual test tool for pre-silicon testing – working in collaboration with the Veloce Virtual Network (VN) App – aims to catch logic errors and thus identify and resolve defects during the system on chip (SoC ) verification flow. It’s worth noting the difference between verification and validation in this context. Verification ensures that a chip design matches the functional specification at the block, subsystem, or system level. On the other hand, validation ensures that the design meets the device requirements and functions correctly in the field. And here is where emulation-based flows address both the pre-silicon verification and post-silicon validation domains. Hardware emulation engines, primarily used for pre-silicon va...
