How to Get the Maximum Out of Your Assertion and Coverage Based Verification Methodology

With ever increasing design complexities, ASIC and SoC design verification has become the biggest challenge for design and verification engineers. Despite having various languages and methodologies, bugs are still missing in the verification/validation phases, which eventually leads to a re-spin of the entire chip.

Verification environments that assist with the right set of assertions and cover points not only increase the verification efficiency, but also aids to ensure that the functionality of the IP has been met according to design specifications. This article gives insight on how to capture assertions and coverpoints and how they should be written to achieve maximum design verification robustness.
