Questa functional verification platform with the iSDV

Mentor Graphics unveil that the intelligent software-driven verification has been added to the Questa functional verification platform to automatically generate embedded C test programs for both single-core and multi-core SoC design verification. As a result, engineering teams find more system level design bugs earlier in the verification process—during simulation or emulation, when they are easier and more cost effective to debug—before they escape into the prototype lab.
