Expert Formal Verification Analysis Shared on Various Topics, including ISO 26262 Compliance, the Discovery of Meltdown and Spectre Security Flaws
SAN JOSE, CALIF. –– March 14, 2018 –– Oski Technology, Inc., the established and trusted leader in Formal Verification Methodology expertise, today announced Oski Formal Verification talks at several upcoming events, including Oski’s renowned Decoding Formal Club, Synopsys’s SNUG and Cadence’s CDNLive.
Presentations and discussions by ArterisIP, Cavium, Cisco Systems and a cryptography specialist will address critical verification issues plaguing today’s design and verification teams. Topics include the verification of cache-coherent protocols, ISO 26262 compliance, software-configurable silicon and networking systems, as well as a keynote on the role Formal analysis played in the discovery of the Meltdown and Spectre security flaws.
“Our customers are seeing the value of applying Formal Verification Methodologies to a broader range of issues,” comments Vigyan Singhal, president and CEO of Oski Technology. “These Formal Verification talks advance the understanding and application of Formal techniques for the benefit of the design and verification community.”
Oski Decoding Formal Club Meeting
The Oski Decoding Formal Club meeting, sponsored by Cadence Design Systems, will be held at the Conference Center in San Jose, Calif., Tuesday, March 20, from 11:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The keynote address titled, “Meltdown and Spectre,” will be delivered by security and cryptography expert Dr. Mike Hamburg, who will discuss how Formal analysis contributed to his discovery of the Meltdown and Spectre security flaws.
Anatoli Sokhatski, verification technology lead at Cisco, will present, “From Formal Verification Training to Methodology Development for Networking Designs,” illustrating Cisco’s experience upskilling and defining a Formal Verification methodology that works for the complexity of networking chips.
The final presentation, “Understanding ISO26262, Formally …,” will be given by Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at ArterisIP and member of the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) for ISO 26262. Shuler will describe the 3Ps (people, process, and product) undergirding the philosophy behind the standard and how the use of Formal methods affects and is affected by all three P’s.

Synopsys User Group (SNUG) and Cadence CDNLive –– Silicon Valley Events
Saurabh Shrivastava, senior manager Hardware Engineering at Cavium, will deliver a session on “Formal Verification of Software Configurable Silicon for Software Defined Networks (SDN)” at Synopsys User Group (SNUG) Silicon Valley Thursday, March 22. Shrivastava will outline how a Formal Verification methodology was used to address the challenge of dealing with the high number of combination settings that are impractical for other verification methods.
CDNLive Silicon Valley will provide a forum for Abhinav Nippuleti, principal hardware verification engineer from ArterisIP and Kamal Sekhon, Formal Verification engineer at Oski, to discuss “Architectural Formal Verification of Cache Coherent Protocols” Wednesday, April 11. They will explore how ArterisIP deployed architectural Formal Verification with design architects early in the design process, before any RTL code is developed, and the benefits that resulted.
