This paper describes the functional verification effort during a specific hardware development program that included three of the largest ASICs designed at Nortel. These devices marked a transition point in methodology as verification took front and centre on the critical path of the ASIC schedule. Both the simulation and emulation strategies are presented.(More)
This paper describes a functional hardware verification methodology for ASIC intensive products. It spans the ASIC, board, and system level, enabling simulation of the design concurrent with ASIC and board development. The simulation strategy relies on rapid development of behavioural models of ASICs to enable work to proceed in parallel and to achieve the(More)
