Viewing Formal Through Simulation-Tinted Glasses

Although Formal Verification is now actively used at many companies, it still has a reputation of being hard to use within mainstream verification environments. Often it is employed by formal specialists, and avoided by others, which is a shame as it offers a lot of benefits in this process. There are several ways in which formal can be aligned with simulation, to make it more natural and easy to use by engineers with a simulation and UVM background.

Christian Burisch, Director Global Application Engineering of OneSpin Solutions, presented operational assertions and observation coverage mechanisms that provide a simulation feel to formal usage while enables the full power of the technology at the Formal Verification Conference which took place on 16 June 2016.
