Since from the ages, the hardware verification has been focused on PC-based design for FPGAs particularly where requirements traceability has been important. But there is a huge demand in device volumes that are not cost-effective in custom IC implementations thus evolves new standards for automotive, industrial and medical. It drives a new trend to FPGAs at higher unit costs but much lower total cost.
Hence, FPGA designs are becoming too complex to debug and designers are turning to UVM and formal proving. This article from SemiWiki describes the difficulties in debugging the FPGAs and help designers overcome the challenges while debugging the FPGAs. Read More
