Overview

Questa Post-Silicon Debug

The immediate challenge is “observability” when you suspect a certain cluster or IP is the culprit. The ability to setup particular initial test conditions, probes, and constrained-random stimuli to reach the internal areas of the DUT is a real challenge given the SoC is in its fully realized state.

Key Features

Formally explore all input stimuli and transactions

Once assertions describing the desired behaviors are synthesized into the DUT on-board the hardware-assisted verification platform, the Questa Post-Silicon Debug app leverages the formal-based Questa Property Checking app (PropCheck) to bug hunt for the root cause of the observed failure.

Rapidly Root Cause Post-Silicon Bugs & Validate Fixes

Leverage formal analysis

The Questa Post-Silicon Debug app leverages formal analysis, as well as property synthesis, to rapidly give you the observability you need to root cause bugs in logic deep within the SoC, and prove fixes don’t break anything else.

Post-silicon debug methodology

Complex SoCs are challenging

  • Observe scenario in the lab
  • Capture observed scenario in an assertion
  • Find potential failures with the assertion
  • Generate wave forms of events leading up to failures
