Linting and its Importance in RTL Design

Linting And Its Importance In RTL Design

Linting is a process of Static code analysis of the RTL design, to check the quality of the code using thousands of guidelines/rules, based on some good coding practice. When these guidelines are violated, lint tool raises a flag either for review or waiver by design engineers. This is done before simulation once the RTL […]

Verification Vs. Validation in VLSI

Job Opportunities in VLSI and Embedded Systems

State of the art SOC designs is so complex that, coming up with a bug-free design is very difficult. So chip design flow incorporates several steps to identify the bugs in the earlier stages as well as, in the later stages. Verification and Validation, both probe for the correctness of the design against the specification […]

What is Unateness in Static Timing Analysis?

Intangible Skills that are in Demand

Timing Sense corresponds to the functionality of the standard cells. It explains the traversal of a data from the source pin of the gate to its sink pin. Timing sense is also called as unateness of the timing arc.  All the standard cells can be classified based on the unateness they possess. Positive unate, Negative […]

How to choose Frontend vs. Backend?

Linting And Its Importance In RTL Design

VLSI frontend and backend are nothing but two different domains in the field of VLSI. The classification is based on the different steps involved in a typical ASIC design flow. Following diagram shows a typical design flow for an ASIC or SOC. As it shows the design flow starts with a specification document which lists […]

Career growth for a DFT Engineer

DFT or “Design For Testability” is a technique, which facilitates a design to become testable after production. It is the extra logic which we put in the normal design, during the design process, which helps its post-production testing. DFT is independent of design verification. Verification is required to verify the functionality of the chip while […]
