This dissertation combines formal verification techniques in an attempt to reduce the human effort required to verify large systems formally.The DE2 verification system can also be used to verify circuit generators, such as the ripple-carry adder generator described in Section 12.6. ... By proving, through the DE2 semantics, that the ACL2 functions always produce correct code we verify a potentially ... Thus it is possible to use the DE2 verification system to translate a Verilog design to DE2, run verified optimizations on it, and ... For example, the DE2 description of a 4 bit ripple-carry adder is shown on the right in Figure 12.8.
