Welcome Verification 3.0
By Sergio Marchese, Semiconductor Engineering
When considering the future of verification, don’t forget the human factor.
Leave it to Jim Hogan, managing partner of Vista Ventures, to look further out at the changing horizon of verification than the rest of us and to make sense of it in what he calls Verification 3.0. In his executive summary, he outlined the significant advancements in functional verification over the past 20 years, such as hybrid verification platforms in Verification 1.0 and hardware/software co-verification in Verification 2.0. Verification 3.0 will take a more systematic approach with numerous trends that will shape the next decade. Hogan nailed some of the key developments and emerging trends in the semiconductor industry that will further define Verification 3.0, and concluded no one company will be able to tackle the challenge.
