LIVE WEBINAR: Effective Testbench creation using Cocotb and Python (EU)

Presenter: Sunil Sahoo, Sr. Corporate Applications Engineer

Thursday, November 9, 2017

3:00 PM – 4:00 PM CEST


Cocotb is a CO-routine based CO-simulation Testbench environment for verifying VHDL/Verilog RTL using Python. It is an open-source environment and hosted on Github. It uses the same design-reuse and functional verification concepts like UVM, however is implemented in Python.

In this webinar, we will introduce Cocotb, and will outline how Cocotb can provide significant savings in development time, promote code re-use and ultimately reduce project time-to-market and total development cost.
