Верификация СНК: выбор стратегии
Every SoC design center has its own design flow, i.e. process of chip designing, testing, verification and production. The design flow depends on many factors: a finance possibility, personal's quality and even traditions in the firm. As SoC production is very expensive task, every firm try to produce good chip on the first iteration. So the verification of the SoC project is the main task of modern design process. The article describes generic SOC verification strategy approach selection based on the given set of criterion. Strategy defines the aggregate of verification methods applied with software and hardware based tools. Proven that verification strategy selection is a complex multi-criterion decision maker methodology, thereby may be introduced as a sequence of verification strategy selection and efforts (expenses) diversification per each verification stage. Proposed individual and group methods of the decision evaluation. This allows to construct the most effective iterative look-up procedure for the given objectives.
