Description Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton 2020-03-02 13:25:41 GMT
Formal proofs turn out to provide 100% code-coverage if written correctly,
whereas standard testbench units tests typically do not, even when dozens,
hundreds or tens of thousands are provided.  Therefore, to greatly simplify
the development and also increase effectiveness of unit tests, formal
proofs are to be written on the low-level HDL libraries used in Libre-SOC.
this includes nmutil and the SoC code itself.  This is *different* from
the *high-level* formal correctness proofs (bug #194 and bug #195)
