Synopsys and Formal

Conference: FV2016 (click here to see full programme)
Speaker: Dr. Hans-Jörg Peter, Software Engineer, Sr Staff
Organisation: Synopsys
Presentation Title: Formal Verification Closure – Are Your Properties Inadequate
Abstract: With growing popularity and necessity of formal verification in modern verification flows, a structured solution to measure the completeness of the formal verification environment is emerging as a critical requirement. While a formal proof on a design ensures absence of any assertion-violating behavior, an over-constrained design or inadequate assertions can give a false sense of correctness. This talk addresses this problem and presents new features in VC Formal™ that enable a methodology necessary for formal verification closure.

  • Identifying false positives
  • Proof coverage for formal verification closure
  • VC Formal and Certitude
