While product and design complexity increases, associated tools and process complexity are also rising. By integrating verification throughout PCB design - starting very early, long before physical prototypes - engineering teams can smooth the entire electronic systems design process and increase design quality through digital-prototype driven, shift-left verification and cross-domain modeling.
Shift-left verification in the design flow eliminates the specialist bottleneck by using automated, integrated tools. Cost and time are saved by finding problems early, during design, minimizing design iterations, and manufacturing respins.
The best practices that can enable digital-prototype-driven verification include a shift-left approach to:
