Virtual Panel Discussion: System Level Verification on Thursday, November 18

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that I'll be participating in an online panel discussion as part of the EE Times System-on-a-chip 2.0 virtual conference next Thursday, November 18. 

Information about the panel is below. I look forward to "seeing" you there!

Time: 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm EASTERN TIME

Verification is the single biggest challenge in the design of SoC devices and reusable IP blocks. There is a tremendous variety of software and hardware-assisted verification technologies available, but which will be the most effective for a particular project? What special verification tools and flows are available for ASIC and FPGA-based SoCs? Can point tools address any "EDA holes" in the large ASIC- and FPGA-based SoC design flows? Architecture-related verification, RTL debug, formal verification, and hardware-assisted verification technologies will all be considered in this session.
