AbstractAtrenta's SpyGlass(r) Predictive Analysis software platform significantly improves design efficiency for the world's leading semiconductor and consumer electronics companies. Patented solutions provide early design insight into the demanding performance, power and area requirements of the complex system on chips (SoCs) fueling today's consumer electronics revolution. More than two hundred companies and thousands of design engineers worldwide rely on SpyGlass to reduce risk and cost before traditional EDA tools are deployed. SpyGlass functions like an interactive guidance system for design engineers and managers, finding the fastest and least expensive path to implementation for complex SoCs. In our presentation, we will present the formal verification technologies used in SpyGlass. We will also cover current challenges in the design of efficient data structures and algorithms that the hardware verification community is facing right now.
