Formal Verification can be used alongside with functional verification to address some difficult project challenges.
This may include complex control logic blocks or mission-critical cases where functionality must be exhaustively verified for safety and security reasons. In some other instances, the design may not be fully specified/understood/documented, so it is hard to capture all the relevant cases in a traditional verification environment. Another application is when integrating a 3rd party IP that is suspected not to be fully verified. Above all, Formal verification doesn’t require writing a full test environment and can often provide good results in a shorter time. In summary, Formal Verification can be applied in a multitude of situations, as part of a holistic verification strategy, while offering a high cost/efficiency benefit. And yet, in spite of its increasingly wider adoption, it’s still believed to be “magic” and many teams don’t adopt it for lack of knowledge and experience.
The Veriest Formal Verification team has accumulated a wealth of experience in Formal Verification across different projects and different EDA tools and technologies. We specialize in seamlessly introducing Formal Verification into the project flow as part of the overall verification strategy, recommending the best spots to leverage this technique, freeing the verification team to apply the traditional methods and resources where these are most needed.
From bug-hunting to full proof – Veriest is the very best in Formal Verification!
As part of customer’s team
In this engagement model, our engineers report on a daily basis to the customer’s site. They perform tasks according to your project manager, and work as part of your team.
Augmenting customer’s team remotely
In this model, our engineers work as individuals or teams in our offices, but are remotely connected to your network, and thus benefit from both words: they are integral part of your project team while being part of Veriest staff at the same time. Both the customer and the engineers can thus leverage other resources and knowledge existing within Veriest’s larger team and it's easier to ramp-up or down resources to your project.
Managed turn-key project
In this work model, a team is assigned for your project. Such team will be uniquely assembled to deliver your project goals, according to the size and skills required. Furthermore, this team will be led by a Project Manager, who will be your primary point of contact for the project and responsible for timely delivery. In this case, the project can also be performed on Veriest’ servers & EDA systems.
Our group faced new challenging projects where we needed to ramp-up new quality verification engineers in a short time.
Veriest interviewed tens of candidates to screen the best team for our needs and fully trained them in SystemVerilog/UVM in a very timely and efficient way.
These engineers are now an integral part of some of our most important projects.

For several years, Synopsys has worked with Veriest to deliver complex verification solutions. Veriest’s Israel and Serbia teams managed projects involving Synopsys’ VIP and they consistently demonstrated a high-level of verification expertize, excellent application domain knowledge of various protocols and a “can-do” customer centric approach.

Tehuti selected Veriest as our Verification partner almost 6 years ago. We selected Veriest primarily due to their expertise in developing state of the art verification environments. Indeed, during the course of this engagement Veriest developed for us a modern verification environment that we still use today. Later, Veriest provided us with verification services for two generations of our products. I’m happy to say that the quality of the verification and the responsiveness of the team exceeded our expectations and we will continue using their services for future projects. I would strongly recommend Veriest tools and services.

Inuitive has been working with Veriest for the last few years. Veriest’s team, managed by a Veriest experienced team leader, integrated seamlessly in our verification team and supported us in completing a complex verification program under very aggressive schedules. Veriest engineers have displayed great team work, accountability, rich knowledge, and quick ramp-up of our project architecture. I’m very happy to recommend their services.
