Is it their raw power? Is it the cheerleaders? Why are verification engineers like football players? It's because they know how to squeeze the maximum performance out of their resources to win the verification game. Charlie Dawson, Senior Engineering Manager at Cadence, has been leading teams that build performance into our products for years and has taken some time to put the whole game in perspective. Read more about it in his article published in EDA Design Line.
The article follows a similar thought to the paper Charlie delivered at CDNLive! San Jose last month. That paper should be post shortly with the rest of the CDNLive! content.
If you have any questions or want to follow-up on any of the points in the article, feel free to post you comment here or send them to genIES@cadence.com.
