GPU Accelerated VLSI Design Verification (IEEE)
Today's Very Large Scale Integrated-Circuit (VLSI) designs require intensive verification effort. However, traditional sequential verification solutions could no longer provide the scalability for future large designs. The so-called verification gap hinders the development of future VLSI products. In this paper, we review our recent works on accelerating typical VLSI verification tasks with modern GPUs. Our works prove that the potential of GPUs can be effectively unleashed through designing efficient data parallel algorithms and/or re-structuring existing sequential algorithms.
