Presentation Title: RedisCovering Coverage: Indeed the Grass is Greener on the Other Side
Abstract: The consequences of building self-learning, driverless cars, and almost omnipresent, low-power IoT systems have huge demands for high quality verification whether it is for safety or security or power. It is no longer adequate to just use simulation and emulation for verification. Whereas the adoption of formal verification has been on a steep increase in the last decade – with increasing use of property checking to find corner-case bugs and establish exhaustive proofs – the all elusive question on “when I’m done” remained unanswered in my mind. Having looked at multiple formal verification solutions over the years as a customer of EDA, at last I have found my answer. In this talk, I will share the cutting-edge story of OneSpin’s coverage solution and why I believe it is the only solution that does justice to the coverage problem not just for formal but also for simulation based verification.
Speaker Bio: Dr. Ashish Darbari leads the product management team at OneSpin. He has been working with formal verification for over 14 years in senior roles at leading engineering organizations, including Imagination Technologies (UK), General Motors R&D (India), ARM (UK) and Intel (USA). At Imagination, he founded and headed the Advanced Verification Methodology Group which deployed formal verification on 50+ projects in multiple business units, while training nearly 100 engineers. He currently holds 7 UK and 2 US patents and has published over 20 papers in top international conferences and industrial forums. Dr Darbari is a Fellow of British Computing Society, Fellow of IETE, and a Senior Member of ACM and IEEE. He holds a Master’s & Diplom Informatik from TU Dresden, Germany and a Doctorate from Oxford University, UK. In March 2015, he was appointed a “Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor” at the University of Southampton.
