Luncheon Focused on Portable Stimulus

Tuesday, June 25
Moscone West, Room 3016
Noon-1:30 PM

Registration is now closed

Join us for an engaging luncheon sponsored by Accellera that will focus on the recently released Portable Test and Stimulus (PSS) Draft Standard 3.0. The draft standard, currently available for Public Review, revolutionizes verification strategies by empowering user companies to select the best tools from competing vendors. Members of the working group will introduce the new features that have been incorporated into the standard, most notably support for behavioral coverage. With the public review period open through July 5, 2024, attendees will have an opportunity to provide feedback and comments via Accellera’s online PSS Community Forum. There will also be time for interactive Q&A following the presentation.  

The Accellera-sponsored luncheon is free to DAC attendees, but registration is required.
