Presentation Title:Fault Injection & Formal – Made for Each Other
Abstract:The usage of formal verification has seen a huge surge in recent years as engineers and management have begun to see the real value that formal’s exhaustive verification can bring. As part of this formal revolution, quantitative measurements for coverage and completeness have allowed formal to integrate even better into verification flows. But, which of these methods is at the top of the signoff tree, providing the most verification confidence? This talk will discuss the perfect pairing of fault injection and formal and showcase how, with the right implementation, fault injection and formal can achieve excellent verification confidence and reach that signoff goal.

  • Formal Signoff
  • Fault Injection
  • Formal Coverage
