Imperas at Verification Futures UK, June 22 2023

Imperas presents the latest advances for RISC-V Verification with RISC-V Processor Reference Models and Verification IP.

Verification Futures Conference 2023 UK

Imperas Software Ltd., the leader in RISC-V models and simulation solutions, today announced their participation at Verification Futures UK 2023, including a talk on the latest developments and implication for RISC-V processor verification. 

RISC-V verification and implications of the 5:1 ratio of DV to design engineers

Simon Davidmann, President & CEO at Imperas Software

It has been reported that a typical SoC project plan assumes 1 DV (Design Verification) engineer to every design engineer as a basic 1:1 ratio. But for processor verification, the ratio of DV engineers is closer to 5:1. The rapid growth in the adoption of RISC-V and the design freedoms offered by the open standard ISA (Instruction Set Architecture) specification is driving a new wave of processor developers pushing the boundaries of optimized processors. As the industry prepares for the coming tsunami of verification work this talk highlights the growing RISC-V Verification Ecosystem based on open standards and extensions to the classic SoC methods of SystemVerilog and UVM.
RISC-V represents the greatest shift in verification responsibility as the challenge of processor verification shifts to all developers exploring the new design freedoms of RISC-V.
