SystemVerilog For Functional Verification

  • Online Training in SystemVerilog for Functional Verification is structured to enable engineers to develop their skills in full breadth of systemverilog features. VT-SVO course covers all aspects of functional verification including constrained random verification, assertion based verification and coverage driven verification. VT-SVO course has been framed to fit to every functional verification engineer requirements and also targeted for graduates aspiring to make career in VLSI Front End domain. Course approaches by teaching basic concepts to most advanced aspects of SV with relevant examples to enable easier understanding of concepts.

    VT-SVO course also includes training industry standard protocols like AXI, AHB, etc, with emphasis on teaching industry standard AXI protocol and developing Verification IP for same. Course also includes 1 industry standard project. All these projects are executed from scratch with students working on complete flow starting from specification reading, feature listing down, testbench architecture creation, component coding and testcase development till verification closure using coverage and regression as verification closure criteria.

    VT-SVO course also includes multiple weeks of Lab sessions to enable student put effort in doing above projects from scratch.
