Conference:Formal Verification 2015 (click here to see full programme)
Speaker:David Kelf, Vice President Marketing
Organisation:OneSpin Solutions
Presentation Title:Extending the Formal-based Ecosystem – Refreshing the parts other formal tools can’t reach
Abstract:Formal-based solutions have proven invaluable for tough verification problems, where the exhaustive nature of the formal approach may be combined with targeted apps. However, the apps that we have seen so far pale in comparison with the possibilities afforded by this technology. Formal techniques have the potential to revolutionize electronic verification and move beyond this space to other areas. However, to realize this potential, more thinking about the way we apply formal solutio seens is required. On the 21st May, OneSpin will make an announcement, which it believes will start to address this gap. Come along to this presentation to hear more about this interesting development.

  • We need to address the gap between formal actual and formal potential.
  • Requires some different thinking about formal technology delivery
  • Announcement on May 21st will explain more
