V-SDC 

Streamlining verification through equivalency checking 

The V-SDC format contains information to streamline functional verification through the use of equivalence checking, providing a record of changes that occur during design implementation. Downstream tools can use this information to improve design understanding and provide faster time to results. As an example, during synthesis, a register might be duplicated to improve drive strength. In the past, equivalence checking tools required user -specified setup information to account for this difference. Today, V-SDC can be used as the automated mechanism to understand these types of design optimizations.
