Verifying external interrupts of embedded microprocessor in SoC with on-chip bus

Fu-Ching Yang, Jing-Kun Zhong, Ing-Jer Huang
2008 2008 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Computer-Aided Design  
This paper proposes a automatic method to verify the microprocessor external interrupt behaviors on the OCB.  ...  With little human effort, even an inexperience designer can generate extensive verification cases in a systematic way.  ...  However, in an additional case, it does verify the reaction of triggering one IRL on a multi-cycle instruction. So the total verification cases are 46.  ...

Formal Verification of a Map Merging Protocol in the Multi-Agent Programming Contest [article]

Matt Luckcuck, Rafael C. Cardoso
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we describe the formal verification of a complex communication protocol that coordinates agents merging maps of their environment.  ...  The protocol was used by the LFC team in the 2019 edition of the Multi-Agent Programming Contest (MAPC).  ...  Although the merge protocol is the most complex communication protocol used in the LFC system, other behaviours also require some form of validation and verification.  ...
