ABQ: Assertion Based Qualifier Methodology for Pre-Existing Environments
Publication: Design & Reuse
December 2, 2010 -- In the present verification scenario with shortening time-to-market, reuse of pre-existing verification environments becomes very important. It becomes part of verification engineer's scheduled work list to check on the quality of pre-existing environments as well as to predict the amount and limitations of possible reuse.
ABQ (assertion-based qualifier) methodology provides the means to a verification team to reduce the qualifying time as well as provides insight into shortcomings of present and ingredients into future environment.
