In a few short weeks DAC 2012 will be upon us (June 3-7, 2012 in San Francisco, CA), and Team Verify and our colleagues on the Incisive Verification team will be there in force with detailed briefings, panels, papers, posters, and of course live demos in the Cadence booth. Here are the formal and assertion-based verification (ABV) specific highlights:
* On the show floor Monday June 4 through Wednesday June 6, our main booth demo includes the hit formal app "Coverage Unreachability" with Incisive Enterprise Verifier (IEV). Since this app's release last year, its power mix of formal, simulation, and metric-driven verification (MDV) capabilities has enabled customers around the world to identify state spaces that are mathematically impossible to reach, saving a ton of time and confusion in the process. Technology Experts Bin Ju, Darrow Chu, and Chris Komar will be on-hand to give you an update, as well as field any questions you may have about other formal and multi-engine apps, and ABV technologies and methodologies in general.
* This year the DAC "User Track" features a whole session devoted to "Practical Formal Methods" (yeah!) - it's Session 8U on Wednesday June 6, 4pm-6pm in Room 106. Even better: Incisive Formal Verifier (IFV) plays a role in two papers in this track: paper 8U.2 "Deploying Model Checking for Bypass Verification" and paper 8U.5 "How we Verified 5000 Lines of a Complex Multiplexing Code with Three Assertions". Without giving too much away in advance, these papers will show very clever - yet widely applicable - abstraction techniques that enable formal to provide results in hours vs. weeks for a simulation-only flow.
* Last but not least, back by popular demand you will see the most amusing formal app of them all - Rubik's Cube solving with a Lego Mindstorms robot driven by IFV (right). If you are a "Speed Cuber" by all means we welcome you to test your skills against the machine like at DVCon and CDNLive San Jose.
Hope to see you soon!
