RISC-V represents an inflection point for semiconductor verification as the design freedoms provided by the open ISA means an assumption of the responsibility of the processor and system verification task.
In partnering with Imperas, the leaders in RISC-V processor verification, we can offer a combination of technologies and interface standards for IP and SoC testing that ensures commercial grade verification for these flexible devices right through to the end platform.

New design innovations with RISC-V offer great potential in automotive applications, but achieving the extensive quality standards are critical for success.
The verification requirements to achieve the ASIL D safety requirement level of ISO 26262 with a processor-based design are extensive, however verification IP reuse through standards such as RVVI help improve efficiency and achieve time to market schedules with all the design innovations that RISC-V enables.
