Various formal verification techniques and how they can be applied to sequential hardware, especially at the register-transfer level, are examined. The basic elements of a verification system, as illustrated on the relatively simple problem of verifying combinational circuits, are presented. The more complex problems involved in analyzing sequential systems and the techniques that have been developed to solve them are then considered.
Semiformal, or hybrid, verification techniques are extensively used in pre-silicon hardware verification.
In recent years, formal methods have emerged as an alternative approach to ensuring the quality and correctness of hardware designs, overcoming some of the limitations of traditional validation techniques such as simulation and testing. There are two main aspects to the application of formal methods in a design process: the formal framework used to specify desired properties of a design and the verification techniques and tools used to reason about the relationship between a specification and a corresponding implementation.

Verilog HDL is a formal notation intended for use in all phases of the creation of electronic systems. Be-cause it is both machine readable and human readable, it supports the development, verification, synthesis, and testing of hardware designs; the communication of hardware design data; and the maintenance, modification, and procurement of hardware.

This standard includes support for modeling hardware at the behavioral, register transfer level (RTL), and gate-level abstraction levels, and for writing testbenches using coverage, assertions, object-oriented programming, and constrained random verification.

Computer-aided formal verification aims to improve the quality of digital systems by using logical reasoning, supported by automated software tools, to analyse their designs. The idea is to build a mathematical model of a system and then try to prove formal properties of it that validate the system's correctness, or at least that help discover subtle bugs. Properties are formalised as formulae in proper temporal logics. A Survey of Automated Techniques for Formal Software Verification, by D'Silva et a.
