Verification 3.0: Grab Your Surfboards, the Next Big Wave is Coming

Highlights of the inaugural Verification 3.0 Innovation Summit in Silicon Valley March 2019.

Verification 3.0 Innovation Summit        Verification 3.0: Grab Your Surfboards, the Next Big Wave is Coming

I’m that rare person, a native (even second generation) Californian, and grew up going to the Southern California beaches during the summers. I earned my Red Cross lifeguarding certificates, and was a pretty good bodysurfer in my youth.  The greatest adrenaline rush I’ve ever had is catching a wave so perfectly that I was in the pipeline, not on a surfboard, but just my body half in, half out of the wave.

The Challenge Of RISC-V Compliance

Showing that a processor core adheres to a specification becomes more difficult when the specification is extensible.

https://semiengineering.com/toward-risc-v-compliance/

The open-standard RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) continues to gain momentum, but the flexibility of RISC-V creates a problem—how do you know if a RISC-V implementation fits basic standards and can play well with other implementations so they all can run the same ecosystem? In addition, how do you ensure...
