Exhaustive Verification of Reset Domain Crossings


It is difficult to imagine an aspect of semiconductor development more fundamental than reset. The ability to initialize the entire hardware design and clean all software running through a system-on-chip (SoC) is essential. Stating with a known state avoids propagation of signals with unknown values. Despite the best efforts at verification, lingering corner case bugs may put a system into a st... » read more

Resets and Reset Domain Crossings in ASIC and FPGA designs


This white paper explains Reset-related ASIC and FPGA design issues as well as outlines commonly-used design techniques leading to safe reset implementations. It goes on to explain about Reset Domain Crossing effects and methods to mitigate their influence on design. LINT tools provide valuable help for designers in Resets and Reset Domain Crossings verification. To read more, click here. » read more
