Functional Signoff: Measuring and Improving Verification Quality to Ensure Bug-Free Designs
In this webinar you will learn how Certitude Functional Qualification can be added to traditional coverage techniques, to provide unique insight into the quality of RTL simulation and formal verification environments. Certitude uses a proprietary mutation-based process to insert “artificial bugs” or faults into the design and measure the ability of your existing verification environment to detect these faults. The results of this process provide an objective measure of overall verification quality – the ability of the environment to activate, propagate and detect potential bugs – and identify specific holes and weaknesses like incomplete test scenarios, missing checkers and assertions, or infrastructure problems that can allow RTL bugs to slip through the process undetected. Fixing these weaknesses makes your verification environment stronger and reduces the risk of signing off or taping out with functional bugs.
