Description
Some engineers argue that today’s verification and validation engines (e.g., formal technology, simulation, emulation, and FPGA prototyping) have become a commodity with very little differentiation. And since the verification problem grows at a double exponential rate, existing verification methods based on these engines will not keep pace with growing design complexity. On the other hand, other engineers argue that today’s verification engines form the foundation for a much bigger verification ecosystem, which in itself provides differentiation and has successfully allowed us to keep pace with growing design complexity. This panel of distinguish industry experts, which hold a diverse set of opposing opinions, will debate the commoditization of engines and its impact on the future of verification.
