If You Can’t Trust TrustInSoft, Who Can You Trust?

If you are a hardware design engineer, you are doubtless familiar with the concept of formal verification as it applies to hardware design, but have you ever considered how formal verification might relate to software and the developers thereof (bless their little cotton socks)?

Life can be a rum old thing, and no mistake. When it comes to formal verification, … Read More → "If You Can’t Trust TrustInSoft, Who Can You Trust?"

Want to Learn AI? But Where to Go?

I once worked for a large computer manufacturer that considered itself to be a “big cheese” in its headquarters’ hometown. For some reason, the folks who donned the undergarments of authority and strode the corridors of power decided to have a blitz on the local media channels — including newspapers, radio, and television — to remind the hoi polloi as to who we were and what we did. … Read More → "Want to Learn AI? But Where to Go?"

Reduce Project Schedules and Increase Quality using Model Driven Development for Design, Verification, and TestThis paper shows how Model Driven Development can address common challenges in the system design, verification & testing of complex systems. Project success requires that hardware, software, and test teams fluently integrate application software, controlling firmware, analog and digital hardware, and mechanical components, which often proves to be costly in terms of time, money, and … Read More → "Reduce Project Schedules and Increase Quality using Model Driven Development for Design, Verification, and Test"
Concept to X: Ten Steps to Effective Model Driven DevelopmentModel Driven Development is proven to improve productivity in the design process. It makes it possible to use models all the way down the flow, automatically generating parts of the design and thus improving the design’s quality by bringing in repeatability and standards compliance. It enables actions such as eliminating physical prototypes from the process, … Read More → "Concept to X: Ten Steps to Effective Model Driven Development"
