The DVCon conference, held Feb. 28-March 3 in San Jose, Calif., was by all appearances a success this year. Major events were well attended and the program had a lot of interesting content. While the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) was a major focus, this year's program made it clear that DVCon is not only about RTL digital verification. Analog/mixed-signal verification was an important topic, as was SystemC and electronic system level (ESL) design.
Here's a summary of blog coverage of major events at DVCon, as well as blog posts that give a general overview. Most of the posts listed here are from the Cadence Community, although several external blog posts are included.
