Last week I was invited in Cambridge, UK, to participate to a panel at the FMCAD conference (Formal Methods in Computer-Aided Design). The subject: “Model Checking in the Cloud”. With another four people, we discussed the questions laid out by the panel moderator:
- How can model checking leverage the advantages of distributed and multi-core systems in the cloud?
- What are possible solutions beyond an “embarrassingly parallel” approach of running a single property per core?
- Is there a specific subset of properties that might be more suitable to this form of analysis?
- What issues need to be addressed for design houses to adopt this technology and will the current license model of EDA tools change to adapt to the new requirements?
