Even a delay of a few weeks can cost tens of millions of dollars.
Post-silicon validation is therefore one of the most highly leveraged steps in successful design implementation.
The best way to achieve high confidence is to leverage the pre-silicon verification work — which can comprise as much as 30% of the overall cost of the implementation — and use that knowledge in the post-silicon system.
Today, much of this work is done manually, which partially explains the high costs associated with system validation.
During the pre-silicon process, engineers test devices in a virtual environment with sophisticated simulation, emulation, and formal verification tools.
In contrast, post-silicon validation tests occur on actual devices running at-speed in commercial, real-world system boards using logic analyzer and assertion-based tools.
My question relates to the need in pairing each pre- and post- answer to the same student?
Contact us to discuss the ways Insight Assessment can help you get the high quality, validated pretest posttest data you need.Large semiconductor companies spend millions creating new components; these are the "sunk costs" of design implementation.Consequently, it is imperative that the new chip function in full and perfect compliance to its specification, and be delivered to the market within tight consumer windows.The idea is to ask students to self- assess before and after the programme delivery across a set of 5 indicators (teamwork, confidence, employability ...).The rating scale will be 1-5 (strongly disagree to strongly agree) pr 1-4 (removing middle option).For further information about Pretest Posttest assessment design.
