While hardware resets can be used to initialize registers to known values, resetting every flop or latch is challenging. Additionally, every FF in the design may not even need to be initialized, for example—FFs internal to a pipeline. Reset Audit enables understanding the design initialization requirements and status accurately. Meridian RXV provides information about percentage initialization, whether a particular FF is getting initialized, by what mechanism it is initialized, and if some FFs can avoid needing to be explicitly initialized. Formal analysis provides a refined and accurate analysis, and parallel processing is used to scale the runtime performance of formal analysis.
