Over 125 Verification engineers honored us this past Tuesday by attending the annual "ClubT" in Hertzelia. Here are some of the highlights (and if you were an attendee please post your feedback or follow-up questions in the comments below):
There was high interest in latest updates delivered in recent versions, with particular interest on the 9.2 version that just came out. (Apparently quite a few of the attendees are approaching the point in their project cycle(s) where they are free to upgrade versions.)
There was also a lot of interest in our future roadmap proposals, and how users will be able leverage and/or trade off their "magic" vs. compute resources.
dentifying, debugging, and fixing bugs faster is clearly a growing issue. Note that this includes making improvements in error messaging and results display such that it's easier to understand the behavior of the simulation.
Questions also came up about leveraging multi-core technologies for increased testbench simulation performance.
Verification CTO Yoav Hollander takes his turn driving the panel discussion
Evidently the momentum of the event was a little too strong, as by the end of the day people were too worn out to get the most from the round table sessions.
For future panels we need better balance the time allotted for introductory statements to give more time for the Q&A.
