Formal Methods in Computer-Aided Design 2022
Recent methods based on Symbolic Computer Algebra (SCA) have shown great success in formal verification of multipliers and ? more recently ? of dividers as well. In this paper we enhance known approaches by the computation of satisfiability don?t cares for so-called Extended Atomic Blocks (EABs) and by Delayed Don?t Care Optimization (DDCO) for optimizing polynomials during backward rewriting. Using those novel methods we are able to extend the applicability of SCA-based methods to further divider architectures which could not be handled by previous approaches. We successfully apply the approach to the fully automatic formal verification of large dividers (with bit widths up to 512).
