PANEL: The Billion Dollar Question: How to Verify Billion-Gate Designs
Chair:
Himanshu Bhatnagar - Mindspeed Technologies, Inc., Newport Beach, CA

Organizer:
Sandip Kundu - Univ. of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA

Next-generation chips will contain literally billions of gates that need to be verified before committing to silicon. With billions of dollars at stake, the right solution is crucial for verifying designs susceptible to complex failures arising from corner-case confluences of timing and functionality. This panel will debate the merits of emerging solutions for such self-contained verification problems that threaten to subvert the nominal “simulation plus STA” verification flow.
