Good news for Specmaniacs based in the EU: next week from May 18-20 is the annual CDNLive! event in Munich. An overview of the conference with info on how to register is here: http://www.cadence.com/cdnlive/eu/2009/pages/default.aspx
Naturally CDNLive Munich will cover all aspects of Cadence's technologies and methodologies, and verification gurus like fellow bloggers Mike Stellfox and Tom Anderson will be attendance to hear your latest verification-specific concerns and challenges. However, Team Specman can not resist drawing your attention to the many papers, techtorials, and exhibitors that will feature Specman and e language-related content. Hence, if you are going to the event, please consider printing out the following "CDNLive Guide for the Specmaniac".
Monday, May 1813:30 - 17:30, Functional Verification Techtorial: OVM in a Multi-language WorldVerification expert Joern Stohmann will lead you though the OVM methodology in general, which includes detailed content on OVM e too. Note to "ClubT alumni": consider this techtorial to be an in-depth, hands-on follow-up to the Multi-language OVM and OVM e preview given by R&D's Efrat Shneydor in the ClubT's last fall.Tuesday, May 1910:30 - 11:00, FV01Re-using OVM test benches for verifying the integration of modules into a system -- presented by engineers from NEC Munich.
11:00 - 11:30, FV02IP Integration Verification using the OVM and Cadence AHB/AXI UVCs-- presented by engineers from NEC Munich
11:30 - 12:00, FV03Functional Verification Roadmap -- presented by fellow blogger Tom Anderson. Expectations alert: while this presentation will have a few high-level notes on the e/Specman roadmap, consider it more of a roadmap briefing on the whole verification product line. Rephrasing: Tom has a lot of ground to cover in only 30 minutes, so please do not freak out if you only hear a few things about Specman.
15:15 - 16:15, Functional Verification demo - New Debug Features in Specman/IESWednesday, May 208:45 - 9:15, FV06Moving from direct testing to Metric driven verification by utilizing verification IPs: A Case study -- presented by engineers from Ericsson
11:15 - 11:45, FV10Advanced e and SystemVerilog Programming -- AMIQ Consulting (Note: AMIQ is also exhibiting at the Designer Expo)
11:45 - 12:15, FV11Advanced Stimuli Modeling Using e Sequences -- Cadence Design Systems
12:45 - 13:15, FV13It's a Mixed Signal World: Mixed Signal Simulation and Verification Methodology Today
e/Specman-related Exhibitors at the Designer ExpoAMIQAMIQ provides ASIC functional verification services, VIP development and training with significant expertise in e/Specman and SystemVerilog too), related methodologies (eRM, OVM, Incisive Plan to Closure Methodology) and tools (Specman, Enterprise Manager, IES-XL, etc.). AMIQ also develops "DVT Eclipse" (www.dvteclipse.com), an Integrated Development Environment for e and SystemVerilog (like Visual C). [Note: Team Specman has just posted an in-depth interview with AMIQ about their DVT tool, and for those of you who can't make it to CDNLive we've invited AMIQ to post a 5 minute video demo.]ARCARC's IP product line speaks for itself -- of specific interest to e/Specman users is that there are a lot of great Specmaniacs at ARC that can get you up to speed with their design IP plus any related verification IP very quickly.Cadence Education ServicesFYI, both the Specman Basic and Advanced training courses have been recently updated. (Fun Fact: in 2008, over 380 people attended a paid Specman training class!)
Cadence Incisive Verification IP ("VIP")While Cadence's VIP is designed to work with e or SystemVerilog interfaces, the Plan of Record (POR) for the VIP R&D team is to use e/Specman for the development of the embedded VIP cores for the all same reasons Specmaniacs have -- e was specifically designed for verification, and over thousands of on schedule, first-pass success tapeouts -- e has proven itself to be the best language for the job.
Cadence Verification AllianceSuffice to say, many Verification Alliance member companies are populated by Specmaniacs, and are supporting OVM Multi-language and e/Specman. If your company is not yet in the Verification Alliance, by all means introduce yourself to our colleagues in the booth and let us know you're interested in tapping the market of Specmaniacs.
Team Specman hopes this summary helps our Specmaniacs get the most out of the show -- let us know how it goes!
