Siemens Digital Industries Software introduces Questa Verification IQ software—a solution that helps logic verification teams overcome challenges associated with the rise in design complexity of next-generation integrated circuits (ICs). Team-based, cloud-enabled, data-driven and powered by artificial intelligence (AI) technology, Questa Verification IQ helps to accelerate verification closure, streamline traceability, optimize resources and speed time to market.

Engineered to help design teams achieve design closure faster, Questa Verification IQ is integrated with Siemens' Polarion REQUIREMENTS software to deliver a platform that automatically captures all data from every engine run across the life of a project, helping customers manage requirements, coding, testing and release management across the design and verification process. This combination provides a digital thread optimized for functional safety compliance tasks, providing a traceable solution from requirements down to verification results and implementation.

Questa Verification IQ unifies coverage data from the formal and simulation engines within Siemens' Questa platform, OneSpin software, Symphony platform for analog and mixed-signal simulation, as well as Siemens' Veloce hardware for emulation and prototyping. The machine learning functionality in Questa Verification IQ analyzes the data to predict patterns and holes, identify root causes, and prescribe solutions to potential issues, helping to improve efficiency and giving teams the information needed to sign off.

“Companies across the globe on the cutting edge of chip design and verification are leveraging big data to spark innovation, streamline operations and boost efficiencies,” says Abhi Kolpekwar, vice president and general manager of Design Verification Technology for Siemens EDA. “With the launch of Questa Verification IQ, Siemens is transforming IC verification with a state-of-the-art, data-driven verification solution that can speed and simplify the verification process using analytics, collaboration and traceability–especially when married to Siemens' Polarion REQUIREMENTS software.”

Questa Verification IQ is implemented in a web-based application framework, providing scalable verification management with minimal install cost, while achieving device and OS independence. Supporting public, private and hybrid cloud configurations with native collaboration and centralized data access, Questa Verification IQ helps global engineering teams collaborate in real time to accelerate the verification management process and provide real-time project visibility. Questa Verification IQ is also fully integrated with popular Continuous Integration (CI) tools such as Jenkins to automate workflows.
