Synthesizing assertions into hardware for faster silicon debug

Assertions are already used in pre-silicon verification and can help halve debug time. So why not synthesize assertions into real logic gates in the final silicon, to catch those unexpected bugs that make validation so much harder? Here’s how.

Using assertions in ‘elemental analysis’ for airborne hardware development – Part One

This two-part article discusses the verification requirements of the RTCA DO-254 design assurance guidelines, including advanced methods for use on class DAL A/B designs. The first part provides a general overview. It also explains the original intent behind the concept of 'elemental analysis', how it is typically satisfied today with code coverage, and the limitations [...]
