You will have 90 days to access Verilog Foundations. The lab database is downloadable and yours to keep.

Speaker Bio:

Jay Tyer has been teaching Verilog, Timing Analysis and various EDA tools for 15 years. He has been working in the development of online classes for several years.

Course Description:

SytemVerilog is an extensive set of language constructs to the IEEE 1364-2001 standard. It’s meant to aid in the creation and verification of models. There are two parts to the language extension. The first part covered by SV101, is new design constructs. SV102, this class, covers verification constructs. SystemVerilog102, like all CBE classes, is lab based.

There are over 30 verification labs/examples giving comprehensive “how to” examples of most SystemVerilog verification language constructs. There are working solutions for each lab and the students can use the lab database for developing their own assertions later. The class is also self paced. All the work can be done independently by the engineers, at their own computer, and at their own pace.

There are self-grading quizzes for each chapter that allow the student to see if he/she is learning the material.

Course Objectives

The goals of this course are to make you familiar with the new part of the language.

Who Should Attend

Hardware engineers. SystemVerilog is the next stage in the evolution of Verilog. Every Verilog engineer will need to know this information.

Prerequisites

Students must have a computer with Internet access. The class is written in HTML so any browser with a Flash (version 6 or higher) player will work.

To do the lab students must have access to an SystemVerilog simulator.
