Maintaining coverage with increasing circuit scale has become a critical problem for logic-verification processes. While transaction-level verification (TLV) is an important step forward, fine-grained (FG) TLV provides better signal-level coverage by reactively changing transactors instead of transaction-level scenarios. Evaluations with a microprocessor design show the effectiveness of FGTLV; all design bugs at the signal level were to be detected, though many were not detected by plain TLV.
