Formality Ultra, Streamline Your ECOs
Formality Ultra reduces the time taken to handle functional ECOs by a factor of two, using formal techniques to analyze mismatches between the (new) RTL and the (old) netlist of the design and allowing the designer to zoom into which changes are needed to implement the ECO.
