Sponsored Workshop: Static Signoff Best Practices – Learnings and experiences from industry use cases

The tutorial covers the still-growing role of formal and static methods in various areas of front-end design: microarchitecture and functional correctness; clocks, resets, and metastability; and analog/mixed-signal verification. First, it contrasts Static verification with Dynamic verification. Next, it proposes when to use static methods based upon learnings from multiple industry use cases. It then details case studies and experiences and how to tame the problems that cause most of the design re-spins, namely logic and functional bugs, clocks and reset issues.
