Brian Bailey

Brian Bailey has been involved with many of the major developments in the functional verification of electronic systems for over 20 years, both in terms of tools and methodologies. Some notable tools include the first RTL simulator, early environments for VHDL simulation, mixed signal simulation, emulation and hardware / software co-simulation. He has recently been cited by Dataquest as the industry luminary for the emergence of ESL technologies for verification and continues to work with companies to help them identify opportunities within this space. Most recently with Mentor Graphics and now as an independent consultant, he combines his engineering talents along with his marketing capabilities and business acumen to identify places in which the efficiencies of verification can keep pace with the ever increasing abilities to design larger and more complex systems.
