Résumé: Behavior driven design for tests and verification
Description: Ulrich Kühne In the course of an exploratory project on hardware and system design and verification, we are looking for new ways how to bridge the gap between early abstract models and later implementation phases. One possible approach is the adaptation of agile techniques to the hardware domain, enhanced by model checking techniques. While in the design of hardware systems, testing and verification are usually applied as a post-process, software developement is pushed towards agile techniques like Test Driven Development (TDD), where tests play a central role. Behavior driven development (BDD) extends TDD as a well established software development technique. Essentially, in both techniques testing and implementing is interleaved, with the test cases being written first. In BDD, test cases are written in natural language which enables the discussion with stakeholders and easy requirements tracking throughout the design. In this talk, I will present a BDD tool for the Verilog hardware design language, which extends BDD with formal techniques. From test cases, properties can be generalized, making the verification more reliable, without the need to manually specify temporal properties.
