Do I really need a commercial simulator?
A quick view of the benefits of a commercial simulator

As an Applications Engineer I visit lots of potential customers, or talk to them at trade shows, who are doing FPGA designs but don’t own a commercial simulator. I ask them why that is. Most of the time it is budgetary restrictions. They don’t...

Plots: A New Way To Analyze Data

Data analysis is often a very time consuming process for a hardware design or verification engineer. We always end up using the waveform viewer which may not be very efficient in giving us a high-level overview of what we’re looking for. Data that is spread across...

Key Components of Effective RTL Linting and CDC Verification
Solving your challenges with ALINT-PRO

Automated design rule checking, or linting, has been around the RTL verification for at least a couple decades, still many HDL designers completely ignore this simple yet very powerful bug hunting method. Why would a busy designer need to run this annoying warning generator?...

FPGA VHDL Verification
How can we do this faster and with better quality - at no extra cost?

This is actually possible – and with an average efficiency improvement of 20 to 50% for medium to high complexity FPGAs. Less for data path oriented designs and more for control or protocol oriented designs. At no extra cost....

UVM. It’s Organized and Systematic.
Mastering the fundamentals

One of the reasons I like using UVM is its tendency toward an organized structure and uniformity. Some may find it annoying to adhere to such a strict format in UVM, but I think it’s a good way to keep the basics of UVM engrained in your brain....
