Overview

RTL simulations is the basic requirement to signoff design cycle, but lately there is an increasing trend in the industry to run gate level simulations (GLS) before going into the last stage of chip manufacturing. Improvements in static verification tools like Static timing analysis (STA) and Equivalence Checking (EC) have leveraged GLS to some extent but so far none of the tools have been able to completely remove it. GLS still remains a significant step of the verification cycle footprint.

There is lot of motivation for running GLS even while STA is leveraging timing checks to major extent. GLS Training(VG-GLS) course will focus on teaching all the aspects of GLS from setup, test plan, frequency plans, SDF corners, and non-timing simulations. Course will also focus on various issues faced during GLS and debugging those.
