Equivalence Checking Using Cuts and Heaps
This paper presents a verification technique which is specifically targeted to formally comparing large combinational circuits with some structural similarities. The approach combines the application of BDDs with circuit graph hashing, automatic insertion of multiple cut frontiers, and a controlled elimination of false negative verification results caused by the cuts. Two ideas fundamentally distinguish the presented technique from previous approaches. First, originating from the cut frontiers, multiple BDDs are computed for the internal nets of the circuit, and second, the BDD propagation is prioritized by size and discontinued once a given limit is exceeded.
