2 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 2 Sugar2.0 Sugar 2.0 is a formalism to reason about behavior over time Uses of Sugar: For documentation: easy to read, yet precise specification Input to formal verification tools (model checker, theorem prover) Input to simulation tools (source of automatically generated monitors )

3 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 3 Goals (in designing the language) easy easy to learn, read and write mathematically precise rigorously well defined formal syntax and semantics expressive sufficiently expressive permitting the specification of a large class of real world design properties algorithms known efficient underlying algorithms in simulation in model checking (with reasonable complexity)

13 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 13 The Temporal Layer Boolean Expressions Sugar Extended Regular Expressions (SERE) Sugar Foundation Language atoms are Booleans Temporal formulas where the atoms are Booleans atoms are SEREs Temporal formulas where the atoms are SEREs atoms are Booleans and/or SEREs Temporal formulas where the atoms are Booleans and/or SEREs Optional Branching Extension (OBE) Building Blocks (atoms) Properties

14 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 14 SEREs – Example1 A SERE describes a set of sequences of states (which we represent using timing diagrams) This diagram is described by the SERE

15 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 15 SEREs – Example1 This diagram is also described by the SERE

16 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 16 SEREs – Example1 expressions evaluated over a bounded sequence of states expressions evaluated over a bounded sequence of states If we want to describe only this diagram we have to change the SERE

17 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 17 2SEREs – Example expressions evaluated over a bounded sequence of states expressions evaluated over a bounded sequence of states

18 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 18 2SEREs – Example expressions evaluated over a bounded sequence of states expressions evaluated over a bounded sequence of states signal holds 4 times

19 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 19 3SEREs – Example expressions evaluated over a bounded sequence of states expressions evaluated over a bounded sequence of states signal holds any number of times between 3 to 5 signal holds any number of times

20 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 20 Examples Until now we saw examples for SEREs, which are not properties on their own, but rather building blocks of properties We will now see examples of properties composed from the SERE building blocks

21 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 21 Examples – Properties suffix implication The suffix implication operator if starting now if the path starting now matches then continuation then its continuation should match

22 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 22 Properties – Example1 if then But the property makes a requirement only for that holds at the very first cycle Add to the beginning of the first SERE

23 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 23 Properties – Example1 Now the property makes a requirement for every no matter the cycles where it holds Note that the requirement is made for more than one (the first) if then

24 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 24 Properties – Example1 if then if then Overlapping is also possible!

25 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 25 Properties – Example1 if then if then

26 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 26 Properties – Example2 if then But what if data does not hold in contiguous cycles? Use instead of

27 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 27 Properties – Example2 if then But what if the signals are only sampled when holds? Apply to the entire property

28 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 28 Properties – Example2 if then Now the property is evaluated only on the cycles where the holds

29 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 29 Properties – Example2 if then

30 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner Properties – Example2 if then 2

31 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 31 Expressiveness Theory At least as expressive as LTL CTL regular expressionsPractice All properties suggested by FVTC of Accellera are concisely and intuitively expressible in Sugar

32 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 32 Implementation Sugar has a core of operators which determine its expressive power Other operators are syntactic sugaring (abbreviations) of the core operators A tool needs to implement Only the core operators Macro expansion of the syntactic sugaring operators

33 D ana F isman Cindy Eisner 33 Implementation (of the core) SugarLTL CTLstate machines Any Sugar property can be reduced to an LTL or CTL property using auxiliary state machines. CTLLTL CTL and LTL have known model checking algorithms. on-the-fly simple transformation rules state machine For simulation we consider the subset that can be verified on-the-fly. For this subset there are simple transformation rules that transform the formula to a state machine describing all possible counter examples.
