Overview

The size of technically producible integrated circuits increases continuously, but the ability to design and verify these circuits does not keep up. Therefore today’s design flow has to be improved. Using a visionary approach, this book analyzes the current design methodology and verification methodology, a number of deficiencies are identified and solutions suggested. Improvements in the methodology as well as in the underlying algorithms are proposed.
