By Douglas Perry, Harry Foster

Meant for layout engineers, this publication introduces normal verification concepts, compares them with formal verification ideas, and offers directions for developing formal excessive point requirement. The authors speak about formal verification strategies for either utilized Boolean and sequential verification, formal estate checking, the method of constructing a proper attempt plan, and country relief innovations. The appendices checklist everyday PSL statements for top point specifications and related standards laid out in process Verilog syntax.

Lookup tables or macro cells perform boolean operations on input signals to the tables. These boolean operations are the functional behavior of the design as specified by the designer. Another function of the RAM data is to configure routing switches to interconnect the functional lookup tables.

This approach differs from that of the emulator in the fact that the designers usually build a custom board to interconnect the FPGA devices instead of using FPGA interconnect devices. The board is a separate design effort from the FPGA devices themselves. The board creates fixed connections between the FPGA devices, and the boards usually have some type of RAM and ROM devices on them for the FPGA devices to store their configurations and to use as workspace. The Good News Using wires on a custom board to interconnect FPGA devices creates very fast FPGA-to-FPGA connections.

Accelerators typically retain all the debugging capabilities of the HDL software simulator, including output of waveforms, and trace databases. Compile times are fast and usually predictable with the size of the design. The Bad News The main bad-news item of accelerators is that they are usually much more expensive than an HDL software simulator. Some of these accelerators can cost 10 to 20 times the cost of an HDL software simulator. For design groups that need the extra simulation speed, the cost is justified.
