Debugging Inconclusive Assertions

This article from Mentor Graphics describes the flow to debug inconclusive assertions and also some techniques to reduce formal complexity that may result in inconclusive assertions; including fixing incorrect initial state and incorrect constraints, removing complicated design logic by black boxing design module/instance or cutting design signals, and reducing assertion complexity.

Massively parallel frameworks for in-design verification

In-design verification is needed to shorten design cycles and maximize circuit performance, ensuring physical designs are correct by construction. Physical verification often forces a decision between accuracy and performance for larger designs. Cloud infrastructure needs are pushing the industry towards larger multi-core server architectures and massively parallel computing frameworks.

This article explores how these massively parallel frameworks can be combined with in-design verification methodologies to allow field solvers to provide golden levels of extraction and simulation accuracy at acceptable levels of performance for larger designs. Read More

Future challenges in design verification and creation

Today, Chip designers are using many techniques to verify a design and also using many EDA tools to address the functionality of the design, both at the logical and the physical level. But, especially with the growing introduction of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and applications, the issues of verifying the safety and security are becoming a major concern. This article from Chip Design describes why security and functional safety will become a major area requiring verification in future.
