We’re concluding the Online Training Deep Dive blog series, which has been taking the top 15 Online Training courses among students and professors and breaking them down into their different technical areas and sharing the supporting courses that go along with them. The first part explored Digital Design and Signoff, then we went into Custom IC, Analog and RF design, and finally, we’ll be taking a closer look into the System Design and Verification courses.
Cadence system design and verification solutions, integrated under our Verification Suite, provide the simulation, acceleration, emulation, and management capabilities, which enables you to reduce system integration time by up to 50%, accelerate IP development, early software development, SoC integration, concurrent hardware/software development, and integrate system validation. The courses we introduce will introduce you to these solutions and teach you how to apply them.
So, let’s jump in!
Verilog Language and Application
Foundations of Metric-Driven Verification
XCelium Integrated Coverage
Metric-Driven Verification Using vManager
SystemVerilog for Design and Verification*
*One of the top courses among students and professors
The Verilog Language and Application course offers a comprehensive exploration of the Verilog HDL and its application to ASIC and programmable logic design. This training course covers all aspects of the language, from basic concepts and syntax through synthesis coding styles and guidelines to advanced language constructs and design verification.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
In this course, you are introduced to the new Cadence 3rd generation Xcelium simulator. All concepts are explained with the help of hands-on labs.
Metric Driven Verification or MDV is a powerful layer of methodology that sits above the Verification Testbench Environment. It provides guidelines and tools for using/analyzing metrics and automation to maximize the benefits of the verification testbench. It is a data-driven decision-based flow that improves the predictability, productivity, and quality of the verification effort.
This course explores Xcelium integrated coverage features. The course addresses coverage of VHDL, Verilog and mixed-language designs. The course discusses the collection and analysis of the following types of coverage:
Cadence vManager is a revolutionary tool which is completely based on the Metric Driven Verification methodology. It is a complete database-driven architecture of Incisive Enterprise Manager with powerful new features for tracking verification progress.
This course gives you an in-depth introduction to the main SystemVerilog enhancements to the Verilog hardware description language (HDL), discusses the benefits of the new features, and demonstrates how design and verification can be more efficient and effective when using SystemVerilog constructs.
All Online Training courses are available for self-enrollment on the Cadence Learning and Support system, located under the “Learning” tab.
