Computer Engineering Seminar

Synthesis, Verification, and Test Reading Group

Kai-hui Chang

Multimedia designs are among the most complex leading-edge integrated circuits that are made today. In this talk, new challenges that arise across the CAD flow, from system and architecture level through physical implementation, will be discussed. It will also discuss new time and space challenges for verification methodologies, which must be met to address the requirements of graphics processor time-to-market pressures.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Silicon Debug

Silicon debug begins with the arrival of design prototypes and can continue well after a product has gone into production. It is perhaps the most exciting and challenging stage of the integrated circuit development process. This paper gives an overview of silicon debug, and describes tools and methods used during the debug process.
