Westboro, MA - December 13, 2005
- Intrinsix Corp. is pleased to announce that SNUG Israel 2006 will feature the presentation of "Unified Functional Verification Approach for GPON SoC Application" - a whitepaper written by Baruch "Bruce" Bergenfeld, GM of Intrinsix Israel and Yossi "Joe" Loecher, Verification Engineer for the Israeli Design Centre. SNUG (Synopsys Users Group) is one of the most popular forums for engineering exchanges in the ASIC design community and local technical committees organize annual meetings all over the world. The SNUG Israel meeting, which will be held February 21st, will be the sixth such annual meeting held in Israel.
Intrinsix has been providing ASIC and SoC solutions to the world’s chip and system developers since 1985. With its headquarters in Westboro, MA Intrinsix operates design centers across the US and in Israel. Intrinsix has presented papers and sat on panels at many of the industry's conferences and user group meetings, including previous SNUG meetings.
The paper, presented by Loecher, will highlight the Intrinsix development of a unified approach to functional verification of SoC designs using VERA. This approach starts with generic verification components including Generator, Collector, Scoreboard, BFM and coverage. Then custom scripts are run to customize the environment for the given application. Intrinsix has deployed this approach in an a design application for the new GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Networking) standard. Intrinsix will show what some of the challenges were using this unified approach for this application and how the issues were overcome.
