This white paper presents Operational Assertion-Based Verification (ABV), an advanced formal verification methodology resulting in a predictable, small number of high-level assertions capturing the functionality of a design. Operational ABV enables an automatic formal coverage analysis, which identifies holes in verification plans, unverified design functionality as well as errors and omissions in specifications. The formal coverage analysis ensures that 100 % of the design functionality is verified – answering the question ‘Have I written enough assertions?’
