Make or Break - Synthesis, Simulation and Post-Silicon Validation
Miroslav Velev - Aries Design Automation, LLC
This session addresses correctness and verification at different levels of abstraction spanning synthesizing correct designs, transistor level simulation, and post-silicon validation. The first paper uses the popular IC3/PDR to synthesize reactive systems. The second paper proposes a new data structure for symbolic timing simulation at transistor level. The third paper introduces an approach for non-repeating stimuli for post silicon constrained random verification. The final paper considers post-silicon coverage monitoring.
