“Team Building is as Easy as Stealing a Car” by Josh Rensch, SoC Verification Lead, GlobalFoundries
Teams accomplished most of the great things in this world. Teams of engineers created wonders – from the Titan Rockets to the Xbox and from the MRI to the iPhone. Those teams needed to work cohesively. Building a well-oiled team shouldn’t have the same level of tension as a Hollywood action movie. There is an underlying trait that all great teams have. Josh will share this secret, and some adventures, from over ten years of team building in the verification space, all to help you build better teams and achieve first pass success.
- Josh Rensch is an SoC Verification Lead at GlobalFoundries in Rochester, MN. In his career he’s worked on the F-35 and the Playstation 3. Since 2004, he’s been leading teams for big companies, small companies and a few in-between. He has a couple patents and several missed family dinners to show for it. In his spare time, he makes custom bacon, plays board games and works with special needs parents.
“ROSE DV Tool Suite” by Eric de Briae, Verification Manager, Netronome
ROSE is a suite of in-house Python tools we developed to perform the kickoff to tapeout project demands of our ASIC silicon development flow. ROSE handles roles from RTL/DV Code Management, to Regressions/Test Management, to DV Metrics and Results Reporting. See how we instituted these ROSE functions utilizing commonly available commercial simulators, SGE queuing, MySQL databases, FLEXlm licenses, Mercurial revision control and HTML reporting.
- Erik de Briae is a Senior Principal Design Verification Engineer and the Engineering Manager of Design Verification at Netronome’s Silicon Design Center in Boxborough, MA. Erik is a computer and networking industry veteran who has dedicated the entirety of his career to the field of DV, since its early first days when netlists suddenly allowed ‘simulation’ within design teams, to today’s complex metric-driven DV environments. Erik has interchanged between working as a DV Manager and/or DV Technical Lead across large companies (Intel, Sun, Cisco, Motorola, DEC) to medium (Mercury) to startups (Netronome, Pirus Networks). Each had their own unique set of DV challenges that required tailored customization. Erik is an avid skier in winter, and in summers is often seen paddling the Cape waters in the 18-foot mahogany sea kayak he built.
