Mentor Graphics Verification Academy Launches Coverage Cookbook

Stocks in this article: MENT

Mentor Graphics Corp. (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced extensive enhancements to the Verification Academy, including the addition of the much anticipated Coverage Cookbook. The Mentor ® Verification Academy is the most comprehensive resource for verification engineers, and provides access to information and online training on advanced functional verification technologies.

NEW - The Coverage Cookbook - A methodology focused on effective coverage adoption

In functional verification, methodology is the bridge between tools and technologies, which creates a productive, predictable, and repeatable solution. This first phase of the Coverage Cookbook introduces a methodology focused on coverage that complements the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM), an industry standard verification methodology that has gained a significant following over the last several years. The Coverage Cookbook is a series of online linked articles designed to help you master the methodology and process required to effectively adopt a coverage-driven verification flow by providing:

  • a foundation of understanding on the various types of coverage metrics available today, and how to effectively use them
  • a repeatable process for creating functional coverage models distilled from a specification
  • real-world examples used to demonstrate the functional coverage modeling process

“Our focus with the Verification Academy has been on building advanced skills and easy to adopt methodologies so that our customers can get the most out of today’s advanced functional verification techniques,” said Harry Foster, chief scientist for the Design Verification Technology division at Mentor. “Our UVM Cookbook is the most comprehensive resource available today, which provides the methodology necessary for effective constrained-random testbench adoption. We are now excited to announce a new cookbook we call the Coverage Cookbook, which introduces a systematic methodology for developing functional coverage models and coverage-driven processes.”

Verification Academy Enhancements

The Verification Academy, which currently serves over 13,000 members, was created to improve the learning experience and expand the understanding of advanced functional verification techniques by providing video training modules, interactive forums and methodology cookbooks and resources. To facilitate this process, the Verification Academy is continually improving its website to meet the growing verification needs of the user community. Recently, the website was completely redesigned to enhance its members’ accessibility to instructional content. In addition, the delivery performance of course video content was improved while using the latest video elements of HTML5 no longer requiring the use of Flash.
