An Enduring Growth Challenge for Formal Verification

An Enduring Growth Challenge for Formal Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 05-08-2024 at 6:00 am

Math blackboard min

A high-quality verification campaign including methods able to absolutely prove the correctness of critical design behaviors as a complement to mainstream dynamic verification? At first glance this should be a no-brainer. Formal verification offers that option and formal adoption has been growing steadily, now used in around… Read More
