This paper presents a functional-space decomposition approach to enhance the capability of symbolic simulation. In our symbolic simulator, the control part and datapath of a circuit is separated, and their simulated results are recorded in different domains. A 2-tuple list structure is used to separate the results in the control and datapath domains. Then, the functional sub-space in the control domain can further be decomposed in order to achieve the optimal OBDD size and run time. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our decomposition approach based on symbolic simulation of arithmetic circuit units.
