A couple comments I’ve heard several times the last few months have lead me to believe that the agile hardware community has reached a critical point: “I was excited to see I’m not the only one experimenting with agile hardware” “Is there a framework/success story we can reference to … Continue reading
Slacking off? Me?? I guess maybe I have been because someone finally got sick of waiting for me to get to a new SVUnit feature and added it themselves… …and that made me happy. As of 2 about weeks ago, Tudor … Continue reading
Pleasantly surprised that I’m able to call DAC a big success for agile hardware. Agile Evolution in the Verification Academy Booth It started monday evening with the Agile Evolution panel in the Mentor Verification Academy booth. We were shooting for a half-hour open discussion where we went through … Continue reading
Here’s some information about a second agile hardware session at DAC in San Francisco. On June 8th at 5pm, you’ll find me and Harry Foster of Mentor Graphics in the Verification Academy booth talking about An Agile Evolution in SoC Verification. Here’s … Continue reading
Good news and better news… The good news is that I’ll be part of an agile hardware panel discussion at DAC this year in San Francisco. The discussion happens at 10:30am on June 9th at the Moscone Center and it’s happening thanks … Continue reading
On Friday I decided I could use a break from the blog so I’m going to step away for a bit. Not exactly sure for how long, but it might be a while. Or maybe not. We’ll see. Meanwhile, you’ll … Continue reading

It should be obvious by now that I don’t mind paddling against the current. And I don’t mind suggesting a rethink of “best practices” we use in hardware development. But then there’s the practices that even for me are touchy subjects, where I know … Continue reading
Considering there’s been lots of new visitors to AgileSoC.com the last few months, I figured now would be a good time to (re)welcome everyone with a reminder of why we’re all here!
Considering SoC development requires several disciplines and considering our history of specializing and siloing these disciplines, it’s easy to see why people fall into the trap of equating agile development with concurrent development. But they aren’t the same.
