Long time no see. My website has been down for a while (technical issues - web experts contact me if you want to help) but now it's up again. And going through some of my old articles here (well, they're all old, I should probably do something about it...) I came across an interview I did some 4 years ago with Mark Hampton, co-founder of Certess - the company that developed Certitude. For those who don't know - Certitude is a cool technology that verifies that your verification environment really does its job. I thought their technology was really exciting and could see how it might change the way verifiers thought about "verification closure".

Anyway, 4 years have passed and today I work at Synopsys who back in 2012 acquired this technology (through SpringSoft) . I can run Cerittude on my laptop and then go to lunch with a Certitude expert. That's what I call closure! 


I will make an effort to continue blogging, but I will need your help to keep me motivated. You can start by leaving a comment to share your thoughts on verification.

 

Oh - and if you want to catch up with Certitude - here's a great place to start.
