Functional Hardware Verification

Cadence via Udacity

This course may be unavailable.


When developing chips it is essential that they get verified thoroughly because it is very hard or impossible to fix them once they have been manufactured. In this class, you will learn how to program verification environments that verify chip functionality efficiently, as well as understand and leverage automation such as constrained random test generation and improve code reuse leveraging a standardized methodology.

Why Take This Course?

This course will teach you how to think like a verification engineer.
It will show the software development aspects you need to know to
ensure chips are working as expected. You will learn how to implement verification environments.

    Great course, I do recommend it to everyone interested in the subject. It give you a very good introduction to what it is about at all, what is verification at all, and then starts coding with simple examples going deeper gradually. Only negativ part is that the dont give you cerification.
