Sunnyvale, Calif., USA, September 28, 2016 – Dr. Pranav Ashar, Chief Technology Officer for Real Intent, Inc., will present a tutorial, “A Paradigm Shift in Verification Methodology,” at the Formal Methods in Computer-Aided Design (FMCAD) 2016 Conference to be held in Mountain View, California October 3-6. Real Intent is a market leader in static verification-based solutions for advanced functional verification and design signoff for SoCs and FPGAs.
Tutorial Abstract: “A Paradigm Shift in Verification Methodology”
Today’s SoCs are driving unprecedented verification complexity. The combination of billions of gates, system-level functionality on a chip, complex design methodologies like asynchronous clock domains and an explosion of untimed paths on a chip, interacting dynamic power domains, aggressive reset schemes etcetera could have been the perfect storm to staunch productivity. Instead it has turned out to be the mother of all necessities that has driven significant innovation in verification and brought about a paradigm shift. Static sign-off has proven to be a pillar in this new paradigm. The tutorial will discuss the template for what has made static techniques successful in verifying modern SoCs.

About Dr. Ashar:
Prior to joining Real Intent as Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Pranav was Department Head at NEC Labs in Princeton, NJ where he developed a number of EDA technologies that have influenced the industry. His paper titled “Accelerating Boolean Satisfiability with Configurable Hardware” was selected as one of 25 significant contributions from 20 Years of the IEEE Symposium on Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines. He has 35 patents granted or pending, a few of which have led to business enablement. Dr. Pranav was adjunct CSEE faculty at Columbia University where he has taught VLSI design and verification courses. He received his Ph.D. in EECS from the University of California, Berkeley.
FMCAD 2016 will be held in Mountain View, California, USA, from 3-6 October, 2016. It is the sixteenth in a series of conferences on the theory and applications of formal methods in hardware and system verification. FMCAD provides a leading forum to researchers in academia and industry for presenting and discussing groundbreaking methods, technologies, theoretical results, and tools for reasoning formally about computing systems. FMCAD covers formal aspects of computer-aided system design including verification, specification, synthesis, and testing.
