A little bit of everything in the blog today:
As someone that was involved with UVM and PSS, both becoming Accellera standards, it is exciting to see both growing independently and together. With PSS we had a massive amount of papers and interest at CDN-live Israel, CDN-live India, DVCON India, DVCON Europe, HVS IBM and more. In many of these conferences the PSS papers were interesting enough to win the best-paper award, and we appreciate the help of the users who stepped up to tell others on their PSS findings.
In the attached video, Liran Kosovizer from TI share his Perspec PSS experience. TI’s paper on this won the best-paper award at DVCON Europe.
