This e-book describes computerized debugging techniques for the insects and the faults which seem in several abstraction degrees of a process. The authors hire a transaction-based debug method of platforms on the transaction-level, announcing the right kind relation of transactions. the automatic debug strategy for layout insects reveals the aptitude fault applicants at RTL and gate-level of a circuit. Debug suggestions for common sense insects and synchronization insects are tested, allowing readers to localize the main tough insects. Debug automation for electric faults (delay faults)finds the doubtless failing speedpaths in a circuit at gate-level. many of the debug techniques defined in achieving excessive analysis accuracy and decrease the debugging time, shortening the IC improvement cycle and lengthening the productiveness of designers.

  • Describes a unified framework for debug automation used at either pre-silicon and post-silicon stages;
  • Provides techniques for debug automation of a approach at assorted degrees of abstraction, i.e., chip, gate-level, RTL and transaction level;
  • Includes thoughts for debug automation of layout insects and electric faults, in addition to an infrastructure to debug NoC-based multiprocessor SoCs.
