Title: Expanding the Reach of Formal: Bigger; Faster; Broader

Abstract : From a humble beginning, Jasper’s Formal Technology has grown to address large SOCs and many of the more difficult design and verification challenges. In the not too distant future Jasper’s Formal will be your default choice for virtually every verification task.  In this presentation we highlight a case study and customer example using Jasper’s Design Coverage Verification App. We will describe how formal coverage metrics, even for “bounded proofs”, can give users the information they need to accelerate the coverage closure process.
