I just finished the week at Cadence's CDNLive User Group in San Jose. Over the past few years, it has really become a great technical event for the verification community. In fact, last year out of all the papers presented across the full breadth of Cadence tools and methodologies, Kelly Larson from Analog Devices won the Most Valuable Paper Award for his presentation which explained the benefits of migrating from VMM to URM (now OVM). I am happy to report for this year's conference functional verification did very well and nearly won the Most Valuable Paper Award again.Anil Raj Gopalakrishnan from Magnum Semiconductor came close to winning and received an honorable mention for his presentation, "Into the Light: Embracing the Open Verification Methodology (OVM)," which interestingly also highlighted many of the benefits of using OVM versus VMM. Anil's presentation will be available to all CDNLive attendees in the next couple of weeks, and then in 90 days it will be posted in the Resource Library here on the Community Site. In the meantime, Anil graciously donated an open-source version of a register package that he developed at Magnum Semiconductor and discussed during his presentation. You can download it already from the Functional Verification Shared Code Forum here on the Community site.
There were a number of great presentations at the conference including:
If you didn't attend this year, hopefully you can make it next year and remember to check the Community Resource Library in a few months if you want to access any of the papers from this conference. You can already download the papers from many of the past conferences.
