Conversation Central Sheela Pillai
So you think verifying an FPGA is a piece of cake? Think again.
Sheela Pillai
Director of Verification, Altera

With the spotlight on increasing complexity of microprocessors and SoCs, it’s tempting to think that FPGA verification isn’t so difficult. After all, FPGAs are much smaller so their challenges are smaller, too, right? Wrong. Sheela Pillai talks about why FPGA simulation is not only different from verifying other kinds of chips, but it comes with unique challenges that are no less daunting.
