Adaptive Test Generation for Fast Functional Coverage Closure

In this work, we propose a low-overhead framework that automatically extracts the coverage dependency graph associated with a design, and leverages the dependency information for adaptive test stimuli generation. Our experimental results, on open-source as well as large-scale real-world designs results, confirm that our approach significantly speeds up the coverage convergence with no human effort required.
