Verification Now 2008 Global Seminar Series to Focus on Verification Planning and Advanced Techniques for SystemVerilog Testbench Design

SUNNYVALE, Calif.—October 7, 2008— The Verification Now 2008 global seminar program, set to launch on October 14 and run through November 3, will provide design and verification engineers with technical how to information that addresses key points of pain in todays verification methodologies. The technical content of the program has been developed by independent third-party verification experts, Verilab, Inc. For more information, please visit

Verification Now 2008 Overview

Complex system-on-chip (SoC) designs require a well-thought-out verification strategy. Proper verification planning and the use of advanced techniques in a SystemVerilog environment can help guarantee that the design and testbench verification process will be successful and efficient. The full-day technical seminar will provide design and verification engineers with information on why verification planning is needed, and how to effectively apply planning to existing design methodologies. The seminar also will look at the importance of layered stimulus generation techniques to build flexibility and reusability into a SystemVerilog testbench, and will outline how to implement those techniques.

The program will be presented by J.L. Gray of Verilab, author of the Cool Verification blog. The agenda and detailed abstracts on requirements-based verification and on building flexible and reusable testbenches using a layered approach to stimulus generation can be found on the Verification Now website at Sponsors of the event are Certess, Inc., Denali Software, Inc., and SpringSoft Inc., and media sponsor is EDN magazine.
