MIPI CSI-2℠ specifications are well adopted and are integrated in many mobile complex systems. In recent years, MIPI CSI-2 specifications have been adopted for automotive systems as well. The different characteristics of these systems, such as increased number of interfaces and system complexity, require developing a state-of-the-art verification methodology to address this complexity, usually under an aggressive timeline.

This presentation focuses on presenting methodology for a full verification flow, from the IP level to the SOC level, based on advanced verification platforms of simulation, prototyping, emulation and virtual emulation.         


Thierry Berdah is a director of software engineering at Cadence Design Systems. He manages the Verification IP (VIP) product line for MIPI, Ethernet and DisplayPort, which helps semiconductor companies shorten their time-to-market and perform superior protocol compliance verification for their designs. Thierry has actively developed and led many verification projects for major companies in diverse areas such as ethernet, PCIe, HDMI and DP, for more than 15 years. Thierry earned his BSc degree in communication systems engineering from Ben-Gurion University in Israel and his MBA from EADA Business School in Barcelona.
