Title:Using Property Checking to find a difficult bug in DMA block: Industrial Experience

Abstract: This talk describes an experience of nailing a DMA bug in a production chip. Whilst debugging a problem in a set-top-box board, it was understood that a DMA did not function correctly and corrupted data during transfer from internal to system memory. Property checking was used to find the bug source in record time for such a problem.
