|Abstract:||It is shown howDILL (Digital Logic in LOTOS) can be used to specify,verify and test asynchronous hardware designs. Asynchronous (unclocked) circuits are a topic of active research in the hardware community. It is illustrated how DILL can address some of the key challenges. New relations for (strong) conformance are defined for assessing a circuit implementation against its specification. An algorithm is also presented for generating and applying implementation tests based on a specification. Tools have been developed for automated verification of conformance and generation of tests. The approach is illustrated with three case studies that explore speed independence, delay sensitivity and testing of sample asynchronous circuit designs.|
