profile for Greg on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites

Staff Verification Engineer with over 10 years of professional experience, plus RTL implementation and schematic experience. When I'm not resolving bugs, I'm finding ways maximize quality of the design, streamline verification, and teaching other best practices. Other skills on my tool belt: C, C++, Perl, GNUmakefile.

I am a advocate of system-verilog because it gives flexibility for verification and enforces best practices for RTL design. Quality design can be done with only verilog, however system-verilog will catch basic design bugs and syntheses surprises early (e.g. transparent latches, multiple drivers on nets, procedural when intending parallel logic).
