Globetech Solutions offers Design Verification and Test solutions optimized for various market segments. By integrating methodologies, planning and IP, we address the complete cycle from specification to validated silicon. By incorporating strong reuse practices into the equation, our solutions target complete platform development across multiple domains and integrated circuits.
Nearly 30% of designs miss the functional specification by more than 50%, and about one-third of designs are completed behind schedule by an average of about four months. These project failures clearly illustrate the limitations imposed by piecing together point tools without a clear plan, methodology and targeted quality of result; no longer, in this ever more increasingly complex ecosystem of System-on-Chips (SoCs), are these acceptable practices.
Silicon Test & Debug
Silicon debug and test are clearly becoming the next wildcard, with the former currently accounting for up to 30% of total project time and the latter running up 50% of total cost. Poor reuse of silicon test, complete lack of systematic leverage on the verification process and exploding test development times, are inhibiting the identification of logical and physical problems during prototype validation; all of which are contributing to significant delays and costly respins.
Because of these, as well as many other challenges, it is necessary to develop and apply complete design automation solutions. These solutions must begin with properly specifying intent in an executable form, followed by a fully automated path to design closure. Methodologies resulting in technical and cultural separation between the pre and post silicon worlds need to be revisited. The result of bridging the gap between verified design and fully validated silicon will be more reliable products which meet time-to-market windows within a competitive cost structure.
Globetech Solutions understands these technical and methodological challenges facing today’s technology developers. We are committed to providing innovative solutions based on designing and integrating best-of-breed technologies and tools in co-operation with select partners. We are committed to developing solutions that will enable automation and convergence of the verification and test efforts. And, we are committed to bringing such solutions to market with a service-oriented approach to ensure our customers’ long term success.
