The Accellera Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) standard is architected to scale, but verification is growing and in more than just the digital design dimension. It is growing in the SoC... More > dimension to include low-power and mixed-signal and the system integration dimension to include multi-language support and acceleration. These items and others all contribute to the quality of the SOC so the Metric-Driven Verification (MDV) methodology is needed to unify it all into a coherent verification plan. This book is for verification engineers and managers familiar with the UVM and the benefits it brings to digital verification but who also need to tackle specialized tasks. It is also written for the SoC project manager that is tasked with building an efficient worldwide team. While the task continues to become more complex, Advanced Verification Topics describes methodologies outside of the Accellera UVM standard, but that build on it, to provide a way for SoC teams to stay productive and profitable.< Less

More > portable microelectronics. The material starts with a top-down design perspective, much like in an industry setting, and discusses the system “from the ground up” (from basic analog IC concepts, biasing techniques, and voltage references to low-dropout regulators and switched-inductor converters) with an educational mindset, rigorously surveying, analyzing, and evaluating basic concepts and the state of the art. The driving objective of the book is to enable the reader to model, analyze, and design power-conditioning ICs using bipolar, BiCMOS, and CMOS technologies. The material places emphasis on basic understanding and critical thinking, that is, intuitive grasp of concepts, which is the foundation for innovative IC design.< Less
