Formal Methods in Circuit Design by Victoria Stavridou

By Victoria Stavridou

The swift progress within the VLSI industry has intended that brands are stressed to convey more and more advanced, trustworthy, and price powerful items. Dependability is changing into an increasing number of vital as desktops develop into a vital part of safeguard severe platforms. Formal strategies which were utilized in software program verification have migrated into the area, the place for various purposes, they've been in a few respects extra winning. This ebook analyzes the criteria at the back of this good fortune and formulates a collection of standards opposed to which a variety of ways to verification might be judged. This comprises settling on the standards and the problems affecting the economic use of formal equipment. Dr. Stavridou additionally presents an total viewpoint of the sphere, provides case stories of varied formalisms and at last describes an algebraic method of the specification and verification of synchronous electronic structures. This particular e-book can be utilized via scholars and academics for classes in verification, by means of designers looking an creation to formal tools, and via researchers drawn to algebraic specification.

Example text

Thus, if there are three charging tanks with one distiller, we can schedule the system such that fds is slightly less than fpmax and the amount of oil in the charging tanks can fill two tanks to capacity. When it switches to process from one type of oil to another, it needs to process a small amount of oil that is less than α, the total volume of crude oil in the charging tanks is reduced. However, because fpmax > fds, two tanks will be full again after some time. In this way, the system remains always in a safe state and the production rate is near the maximal one.

The answer is negative as shown in the following theorem.

Initially, at time τ0, M0(p1c) = 1 and V(M0(p1c, φ1)) = 3α, and all other places are empty. At this time, transition t12 fires to feed p1 and meanwhile y fires with color φ1 to charge p2s with volume ζ0. At time τ1 = τ0 + ζ0/fpmax, M1 is reached such that M1(p1c) = M1(p2s) = 1, V(M1(p1c, φ1)) = 3α - ζ0 > 2α, and V(M1(p2s, φ1)) = ζ0. At M1, t12 continues firing to feed p1, the firing of y switches to charge p3s with color φ2, and t21 fires. At τ2 = τ1 + 2Ψ, M2 is reached such that M2(p1c) = M2(p2c) = M2(p3s) = 1, V(M2(p1c, φ1)) = α - ζ0 > 0, V(M2(p2c, φ1)) = ζ0, and V(M2(p3s, φ2)) = 2α.
