This book is the result of the deep involvementof the authors in the development of EDA tools, SystemVerilog Assertion standardization, and many years of practical experience. One of the goals of this book is to expose the oral knowhow circulated among design and veri?cation engineers which has never been written down in its full extent. The book thus contains many practical examples and exercises illustr- ing the various concepts and semantics of the assertion language. Much attention is given to discussing ef?ciency of assertion forms in simulation and formal veri?- tion. We did our best to validate all the examples, but there are hundreds of them and not all features could be validated since they have not yet been implemented in EDA tools. Therefore, we will be grateful to readers for pointing to us any needed corrections. The book is written in a way that we believe serves well both the users of SystemVerilog assertions in simulation and also those who practice formal v- i?cation (model checking). Compared to previous books covering SystemVerilog assertions we include in detail the most recent features that appeared in the IEEE 1800-2009 SystemVerilog Standard, in particular the new encapsulation construct “checker” and checker libraries, Linear Temporal Logic operators, semantics and usage in formal veri?cation. However, for integral understanding we present the assertion language and its applications in full detail. The book is divided into three parts.

The Power of Assertions in SystemVerilog is a comprehensive book that enables the reader to reap the full benefits of assertion-based verification in the quest to abate hardware verification cost. The book is divided into three parts. The first part introduces assertions, SystemVerilog and its simulation semantics. The second part delves into the details of assertions and their semantics. All property operators, in conjunction with ease-of-use features and examples, are discussed to illustrate the immense expressive power of the language. The third part presents an extended description of checkers and a methodology for building reusable checker libraries. The book concludes by outlining some desirable future enhancements. Detailed descriptions of the language features are provided throughout the book, along with their uses and how they play together to construct powerful sets of property checkers. The exposition of the features is supplemented with examples that take the reader step-by-step, from intuitive comprehension to much greater depth of understanding, enabling the reader to become an expert user. A unique aspect of the book is that it is oriented toward both simulation and formal verification. The semantics is discussed in terms of both simulation events and formal definition. This blended approach imparts profound conceptual and practical guidance for a broader spectrum of readers. The Power of Assertions in SystemVerilog is a valuable reference for design engineers, verification engineers, tool builders and educators.About the Author:
