Jason Andrews is currently working in the areas of hardware/software co-verification and testbench methodology for SoC design at Verisity. He has implemented multiple commercial co-verification tools as well as many custom co-verification solutions. His experience in the EDA and embedded marketplace includes software development and product management at Verisity, Axis Systems, Simpod, Summit Design, and Simulation Technologies. He has presented technical papers and tutorials at the Embedded Systems Conference, Communication Design Conference and IP/SoC and written numerous articles related to HW/SW co-verification and design verification. He has a B.S. in electrical engineering from The Citadel, Charleston, S.C., and an M.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Minnesota. He currently lives in the Minneapolis area with his wife, Deborah, and their four children.
