Oski Formal Verification IP Library for ARM© AMBA© Standard Protocols

Oski’s library of verification IP components enable formal sign-off of compliance to ARM protocols in SoC designs. Oski VIPs are carefully designed to have minimal state space in order to maximize the efficiency of formal tools. They are compatible with a variety of formal, simulation and emulation tools. This makes the library components usable throughout the design cycle and portable across tool vendor flows.
