Breker Launches the Synthesizable VerificationOS™ to Simplify and Streamline the Composition of High-Coverage, Portable Test Content/by becbrek
Lightweight kernel provides key services and execution management of Software-Driven SoC, UVM, and Post-Silicon production verification environments
SAN JOSE, CALIF. — March 1st, 2021 — Breker Verification Systems, the leading provider of advanced test content generation solutions for System-on-Chip (SoC), Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) and Post-Silicon verification environments today announced the Synthesizable VerificationOS™. The Synthesizable VerificationOS allows operating system-like services to be automatically embedded in test content and manages the execution of concurrent test operations, particularly critical for the verification of complex SoCs.
The Synthesizable VerificationOS will be a major part of a Breker-sponsored workshop at DVCon US on March 1st, which will also feature an interview with Mike Chin, Principal Engineer at Intel, where he discusses the need for this technology.
“Modern SoCs require functional tests that can track the highly complex corner cases created by operational concurrency in both software and hardware,” noted Adnan Hamid, Chief Executive Officer, Breker Verification Systems. “Just like software needs an OS, software-driven test content requires the Synthesizable VerificationOS to simplify composition, scale concurrent coverage and drive shift-left test content portability.”
Breker Verification Systems Launches Unique RISC-V TrekApp for Automated, High-Coverage System Integration Test Suite Synthesis/by becbrek
Developed with SiFive to Address RISC-V System Integration Validation; Generates High-Impact SoC Verification Test Suite with Minimal Manual Effort
SAN JOSE, CALIF. –– December 10, 2019 –– Breker Verification Systems, the leading provider of Test Suite Synthesis tools based on the Portable Stimulus Standard (PSS), today introduced its RISC-V TrekApp, a complete, automated test content generator for RISC-V system integration testing.
RISC-V TrekApp, the first solution to address the entire RISC-V system-on-chip (SoC) system integration problem, targets complex verification challenges and increases coverage by executing unpredictable corner-case scenarios without the need for manually developed test content. The TrekApp works with existing universal verification methodology (UVM) and SoC verification environments and does not require the user to learn the PSS language.
“RISC-V excels in enabling new and innovative designs, creating verification opportunities for system integration,” remarks Adnan Hamid, Breker’s president and chief executive officer. “Breker’s RISC-V TrekApp builds on our success with other processors to fully automate this intensive task while allowing for the distinctiveness created by RISC-V, saving hours of laborious test development while increasing coverage.”
Breker Verification Systems Unveils Intelligent Regression Optimization Solution to Accelerate Simulation, Emulation Execution/by becbrek
New Efficiency Features Include Intelligent Coverage Targeting, Pre-Solve/Compile Test Application, RapidFire Test Scheduling
SAN JOSE, CALIF. –– September 24, 2019 –– Breker Verification Systems, the leading provider of Portable Stimulus Standard (PSS)-compliant software, today announced its PSS-based Test Suite Synthesis includes a set of new efficiency features including Intelligent Coverage Targeting, Pre-Solve/Pre-Compile Test Application and RapidFire™ Test Scheduling.
The combination of efficiency features bundled into Breker’s Intelligent Regression Optimization Solution on average saves 75% or more in execution time. Some emulation runtimes improve by an order of magnitude with the tool.
“As SoC verification solutions evolve, significant inefficiencies emerge that impact performance and achievable coverage,” observes Adnan Hamid, Breker’s president and chief executive officer. “Test Suite Synthesis provides the opportunity to correct these. It leverages coverage specifics to drive test production, avoids emulation testbench compilation and random solving during execution, and batches test sets together while eliminating redundant startup procedures.”
