Importance Of ASIC Verification


Modern Day Designs

Technological advancements have touched and transformed almost every sphere of our lives. From the high-end satellites in space that give us accurate information on the weather, location, level of natural resources and a lot more to the smartphones in our hands, engineering marvels are ubiquitous. Cars in the olden days were merely machines running on fuel, but the modern day cars are equipped with computer vision and intelligence. When cell phones came into existence, they were hot and huge, but now the cell phones have shrunk and so have their power demands. Not to forget that our cell phones now even double up as a map, camera, audio-video player, notepad, watch, calendar and much more rolled into one. The lifelike sound and visual effects rendered by the modern day audio visual systems were unthinkable in the past. But as Rome wasn’t built in a day, the metamorphosis of almost everything we see and touch has taken...
