Elements of Low Power Verification Methodology

Some elements required by almost all designs are:

  • Use of voltage aware booleans for logic behavior
  • Use of voltage aware models for mixed signals components
  • Testing of reset and retention functions
  • Power aware assertions
  • Power management coverage
  • Random asynchronous stimulus generation to exercise the concurrent power management events
  • Adoption of firmware validation approach to exercise true in-system functionality of the device
