Best Verifiable QoR – A Formal Equivalence Checking Yardstick
September 8 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
To achieve maximal QoR, Broadcom wanted to take advantage of all the advanced optimizations that Design Compiler offers. These optimizations, however, are of little value if they cannot be verified through Formal Equivalence Checking.
This presentation details how Formality Equivalence Checking gave Broadcom the confidence to verify and signoff designs without scaling back or switching off the optimizations or sacrificing PPA goals.
Sathappan Palaniappan works for the ASIC Product Division of Broadcom. His expertise lies in front end design, ranging from architecture, design, RTL coding, synthesis, formal equivalence verification, STA, DFT, and more. He has 5 published patents in audio decoder, Memory PPA optimizations (3) and asynchronous arbiter for masters operating at highly varied dialed frequencies. Sathappan received his Bachelor’s degree in Applied Sciences, Bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering and Master’s degree in VLSI Designs.
