July 20, 2012 -- High-resolution graphics displays are becoming a key part of automotive manufacturers' strategies to simultaneously differentiate from their competitors, reduce production cost, and increase customer satisfaction. Our group at Fujitsu develops IP blocks and SOCs to help developers realize these advantages.
One of our IP blocks is called Iris, a 2D-graphics engine. This IP is composed of many reusable sub-components, which can be easily rearranged to create new derivatives of Iris that are then integrated into a range of products. All of these sub-components, of course, need to be verified in addition to the final product. For this purpose, we employ a metric-driven verification flow.
