Advanced Formal Verification
On-demand Web Seminar
In recent years, formal verification has emerged as an alternative approach that addresses the main limitation of simulation-based verification: checking a small fraction of the behaviours of non-trivial hardware designs. Formal verification consists of verifying that a design satisfies a given requirement for all legal input patterns. Formal verification has been successfully applied in the last few years and the scope of applications has dramatically increased.
What You Will Learn
- When is a formal verification problem complex?
- What has a verification tool to offer in this case?
- What should/can the verification engineer do in this case?
- Why is debugging difficult?
- What is required in a mixed-language context?
- How can formal verification be used as a complementary solution for simulation?
