Applying Big Data to Next-Generation Coverage Analysis and Closure

Abstract

By: Tom Fitzpatrick, Mentor, a Siemens Business

Coverage closure remains the biggest functional verification challenge in our industry. This two-hour technical presentation will establish the need for a next-generation collaborative verification platform, providing enterprise-wide team-based shared coverage analytics and collaborative verification process integration, including lifecycle management integration. We will explore new ways of visualizing coverage data from different verification platforms – including simulation, emulation, FPGA and virtual prototyping and formal verification – to facilitate analytical navigation, and applying advanced analytics, including data mining and machine learning, to help your team identify functional coverage holes and effectively mobilize your verification team to reach coverage closure like never before.
