A Practical Approach to Word Level Model Checking of Industrial Netlists
In this paper we present a word-level model checking method that attempts to speed up safety property checking of industrial netlists. Our aim is to construct an algorithm that allows us to check both bounded and unbounded properties using standard bit-level model checking methods as back-end decision procedures, while incurring minimum runtime penalties for designs that are unsuited to our analysis. We do this by combining modifications of several previously known techniques into abstraction algorithm which is guaranteed to produce bit-level netlists that are as small or smaller than the original bitblasted designs. We evaluate our algorithm on several challenging hardware components.
