these workshops on their own, we invite everyone to contact your local
Application Engineer to setup an interactive learning session with your team.
Introduction to the e Verification
This workshop is targeted at
customers who are interested in learning about the basic syntax and
capabilities of the e verification language. The workshop material
consists of slides based on the previously existing "Get Up To Speed"
training as well as 6 lab exercises that walk users through the basics of
working with the e language while creating a basic UART frame and simplified
verification environment. This workshop focuses on language mainly and
will point users to an eRM / OVM e workshop for
more advanced material as well as the "Introduction to Specman Elite"
workshop (see below) for more details on the capabilities of Specman Elite.
Introduction to Specman Elite
This workshop is targeted at customers who are interested in discovering
more about the variety of features available inside the Specman Elite
tool. The workshop material consists of both slides and labs, and covers
topics such as configuration commands, loading and running tests, basic
debugging, coverage analysis, and more. While this workshop focuses
primarily on the Specman Tool, it also gives pointers to the "Introduction
to the e Verification Language" workshop for language details, as well as
the "eRM / OVM e Workshop" and the
"MDV Workshop" for more advanced material.
Generation Using "IntelliGen"
This workshop is an introduction to the generation concepts in general and,
specifically, the benefits of working with "IntelliGen", Specman's
new Aspect Oriented Generation technology. IntelliGen provides increases
solvability, ease-of-use, performance, and scalability to handle DUTs with over
1 billion logic gates. This workshop uses hands-on labs with a realistic,
multiple eVC testbench to introduce the new capabilities that deliver these
benefits, including a walk through the all new Generation Debugger, how to
capture complex arithmetical operations, and new performance profiling
features. Thus, you will have the opportunity to perform migration steps
on this environment using the new linters to identify potential generation
issues up front, debug contradictions using the new generation debugger,
identify and fix generation performance bottlenecks, as well as run both
IntelliGen and the traditional "Pgen" generator on different portions
of your environment in "mixed mode" operation.
