Video: Oski Technology’s Courageous "72 hour Verification Challenge" Using Incisive Enterprise Verifier (IEV)

I've seen a lot of intriguing promotions over the years, but at DAC 2012 our partners at Oski Technology tackled a truly unique challenge. To show off their formal verification prowess they took an IP block from NVIDIA sight unseen  (actually, on Sunday evening before the DAC they received a spec and a 15 minute briefing) and over the course of 72 hours from Sunday at 5pm to Wednesday at 5pm they used Incisive Enterprise Verifier ("IEV")) and their years of verification experience to deliver impressive results.  In this video Oski's CEO Vigyan Singhal gives a snapshot of the challenge while it was in progress, and then reports on the results after the dust has settled.

Again, I can't recall any EDA vendor or services house ever attempting such a compelling and relevant challenge, let alone delivering such impressive and meaningful results.  If Oski (and IEV) can deliver results like this in 72 hours, imagine what they can do on a longer project ...

P.S. Oski Technology was on fire at DAC: in concert with Cisco they also won the DAC User Track Best paper award (for a project using Incisive Formal Verifier ("IFV"))!  Here is a brief review of this paper: http://goo.gl/5Bxbg
