Verification Now Global Seminars

The Verification Now 2008 seminars will take place October 14 and through November 3. This year events will feature technical “how to” information that addresses key points of pain in today’s verification methodologies. The full-day technical seminar will provide design and verification engineers with information on why verification planning is needed, and how to effectively apply planning to existing design methodologies. The seminar also will look at the importance of layered stimulus generation techniques to build flexibility and reusability into a SystemVerilog testbench, and will outline how to implement those techniques.
