20080235637 | METHOD FOR HEURISTIC PRESERVATION OF CRITICAL INPUTS DURING SEQUENTIAL REPARAMETERIZATION - A method, system, and computer program product for preserving critical inputs. According to an embodiments of the present invention, an initial design including one or more primary inputs which cannot be eliminated, one or more primary inputs which can be eliminated, one or more targets, and one or more state elements are received. A cut of said initial design including one or more cut gates is identified, and a relation of one or more values producible to said one or more cut gates in terms of said one or more primary inputs which cannot be eliminated, said one or more primary inputs which can be eliminated and said one or more state elements is computed. Said relation is synthesized to form a gate set, and an abstracted design is formed from said gate set. Verification is performed on said abstracted design to generate verification results. | 09-25-2008 |

20090089730 | Scalable Dependent State Element Identification - Methods, systems and software products are provided to enhance the scalability of dependent state analysis element identification. In a method of partitioning a model representing a state machine, a variable is selected from the variables of the model, and a first set of variables are identified that support the selected variable. Then a second set of variables is identified that have overlapping support of the first set of variables. The second set of variables is a partition suitable for use in determining an overapproximation of the reachable states of the selected variable. | 04-02-2009 |

20090164965 | Method and System for Building Binary Decision Diagrams Efficiently in a Structural Network Representation of a Digital Circuit - A method, system and computer program product for building decision diagrams efficiently in a structural network representation of a digital circuit using a dynamic resource constrained and interleaved depth-first-search and modified breadth-first-search schedule is disclosed. The method includes setting a first size limit for a first set of one or more m-ary decision representations describing a logic function and setting a second size limit for a second set of one or more m-ary decision representations describing a logic function. The first set of m-ary decision representations of the logic function is then built with one of the set of a depth-first technique or a breadth-first technique until the first size limit is reached, and a second set of m-ary decision representations of the logic function is built with the other technique until the second size limit is reached. In response to determining that a union of first set and the second set of m-ary decision representations do not describe the logic function, the first and second size limits are increased, and the steps of building the first and second set are repeated. In response to determining that the union of the first set of m-ary decision representations and the second set of m-ary decision representations describe the logic function, the union is reported. | 06-25-2009 |

20100050145 | Optimizing a Netlist Circuit Representation by Leveraging Binary Decision Diagrams to Perform Rewriting - Leveraging existing Binary Decision Diagrams (BDDs) to enhance circuit reductions in a system model representing a state machine as a netlist. The netlist is evaluated to determine the regions with the greatest potential reductions. BDD sweeping is performed to identify redundancies in the netlist. BDD rewriting implements the circuit reductions by replacing gates of the original netlist with more efficient equivalent logic. | 02-25-2010 |

20100251199 | Method and system for automated convergence of ternary simulation by saturation of deep gates - A method, system and computer program product for X-Saturated ternary simulation based reduction. An X-Saturated ternary simulation (XSTS) utility, which executes on a computer system, receives design information, where the design information includes a netlist. The XSTS utility initializes one or more data structures and/or variables and simulates, in a ternary fashion, the netlist at a time value by applying logical X values to all RANDOM gates of the netlist and to registers marked X_SATURATED. For each register of the netlist XSTS utility: determines whether or not the register departs from its expected prefix behavior, and if the register departs from its expected prefix behavior, the register is marked as X_SATURATED and the current state is updated with an X value upon the register. XSTS utility can store the current state in a data structure and can use the information from the data structure to simplify the design. | 09-30-2010 |

20100293513 | Method and System for Design Simplification Through Implication-Based Analysis - Methods and systems are provided for reducing an original circuit design into a simplified circuit design by merging gates that may not be equivalent but can be demonstrated to preserve target assertability with respect to the original circuitry design. A composite netlist is created from the simplified netlist and the original netlist. The composite netlist includes a number of targets that imply the existence of a target in the simplified netlist and a corresponding target in the original netlist. The implications are verified and then validated to ensure the simplied circuit design is a suitable replacement for the original circuit design. | 11-18-2010 |
