REMINDER: Zocalo Tech President Covers Challenges and Opportunities of Enabling Assertion-Based Verification (ABV)

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - December 7, 2009) -


Who/What

Howard L. Martin, Zocalo Tech's president, spoke with EDACafé about the challenges and opportunities for enabling widespread acceptance of Assertion-Based Verification (ABV). ABV is considered the technology that can have the most impact for reducing re-spins of complex chips.

In his interview, Mr. Martin makes the following points.

--  Assertion use today is mainly ad hoc and dependent on the skill and
    desire of engineers to use assertions.
--  ABV use requires the use of assertions as part of the verification
    methodology.
--  Implementing ABV is a major challenge and there's no magic bullet to
    make ABV happen overnight.
--  Projects need automation for creating and managing assertions cost
    effectively.
--  Management needs metrics to even consider ABV.
