Adrien Carmagnat of AEDVICES on Functional Safety at DVCon Europe
Adrien Carmagnat, AEDVICES’ latest recruit and an expert in verification methodologies, presented a paper on Keeping up with rapidly advancing safety standards at DVCon Europe in Munich last month (2018 Proceedings will be made available late January on the DVCon website).
We were particularly pleased to present this work since (we believe) it makes a significant contribution to industry discussions on safety standards, and especially the part that Functional Verification has to play.
Furthermore, it is the fruition of an excellent collaboration with our customer, Melexis, and it’s been a great professional development experience for Adrien.
Adrien started as a trainee within AEDVICES Consulting eight months ago having majored in Embedded Systems at Polytech’Sophia. He has been trained on Advanced Verification Methodologies and during his internship he also developed skills in Verification IP and Tool Qualification. To recognise his excellent contribution to the project, we asked Adrien to step up to the plate and make the DVCon presentation, knowing there was a lot of verification expertise in the audience and that this would be a challenge!
Adrien was proud to make the presentation (and a bit nervous, too!). As he said afterwards: “I went on stage with a bit of stress, but it turned out to be easier than I’d expected! The attendees seemed interested. They asked probing questions and even shared some ideas that are prompting me to dig deeper into the subject. They may be useful for another paper next year – who knows! “
