The Cadence Incisive Enterprise Verifier (IEV) team recently
developed a self-help training kit - a Rapid Adoption Kit - to help users gain practical experience applying IEV's Coverage
Unreachability (UNR) App. The RAK also helps users see the benefits of different approaches, UNR flow
with and without initialization.
The "Coverage Unreachability UNR App" RAK is now available on Cadence
Given an existing simulation environment, assertions are
automatically generated from the code coverage holes and formal analysis is
used to detect any unreachables. Unreachable code coverage is detected with
each approach and results are compared between runs using IMC to locate and
view the unreachables. You will also learn how to set up the simulation to
collect code coverage and dump a minimal reset waveform for initializing the
The key objective is to familiarize the user with the flow, by
1. Simulation to generate the coverage database (and optional waveform
for formal analysis initialization)
2. Formal analysis on the simulation code coverage to detect the
unreachables and generate an unreachables database with two setups: basic
uninitialized and initialized
3. IMC to merge the generated unreachables database into the
original simulation database and load the merged database to view and accept
