New Formal Verification Courses on Verification Academy

The Verification Academy is organized into a collection of free online courses (modules) and resources, focusing on key aspects of advanced functional verification. Each course consists of multiple sessions—allowing the participant to pick and choose specific topics of interest, as well as revisit any specific topics for future reference. In addition, each session identifies its appropriate target audience, which includes:


  • Crawl: content is technical, but at an introductory level, and of interest to novice engineers.
  • Walk: content is of general interest, particularly to managers, but also engineers.
  • Run: content is technical in nature, and of interest to engineers.


The Verification Academy will provide you with a unique opportunity to develop an understanding of how to mature your organization's processes so that you can then reap the benefits that advanced functional verification offers.

Mentor Graphics' Verification Academy is a first of its kind—unlike anything in the industry. Its goals are to provide the skills necessary to mature an organization's advanced functional verification process capabilities. To this end, the Verification Academy provides a methodological bridge between high-level value propositions (related to advanced verification technology) and the low-level details (related to specific tool and verification language details).
