Can formal verification technology take a large design, sight unseen, and produce meaningful results in 3 days? Cadence partner Oski Technology is betting the answer is "yes," and is offering to prove it at the Oski Live Formal Verification Challenge at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) in June 2012.
Oski is a verification services firm that specializes in formal model checking. They use tools including the Cadence Incisive Formal Verifier (IFV) and Incisive Enterprise Verifier (IEV). Oski also provides abstraction models that help formal tools achieve convergence. (For more information about the company, see my video interview with Vigyan Singhal, Oski CEO, at DAC 2011.)
The challenge works like this. A participating design team provides an RTL design of any type (processor, networking, SoC, IP, or anything else) in any design phase - or, it could be a legacy design. Oski will receive the design at 6pm Sunday June 3, once again, sight unseen. They promise to deliver results by 5pm Wednesday June 6.
Oski will work with the design team to determine what types of information would be most suitable for a summary report. While Oski will share high-level results at an informal event Wednesday night, detailed results will not be publicly disclosed.
This challenge is an "exciting, groundbreaking venture," said Philippa Slayton, manager of business development at Oski Technology. Slayton said the challenge is "an unparalleled opportunity to demonstrate what can be done with our abstraction models and off-the-shelf EDA tools to deliver results with formal under an extremely tight deadline."
Not all blocks are well suited for formal analysis, but Slayton said Oski will "consider any RTL design." There are no set size limits. "We will consider designs of all sizes, but will pay special attention to submissions of large and complex designs," she said.
Participation in the challenge is free of charge, and the team contributing the design receives the same detailed report that Oski provides to its customers. Each team member will receive a Time-to-Verify certificate, a finish photograph with the Oski engineering staff, and an Oski Live Verification Challenge T-shirt.
NOTE: They don't need the design until June 3, but to participate, you must declare your intent by Friday April 20 and provide inputs by May 4. The challenge web site has all the details. For more information about the challenge, see Joe Hupcey's recent video interview with Vigyan Singhal in the Team Verify blog.
