A new generation of CAD tools is mandatory to cope with the growing complexity of system-on-chip. We believe that they should be built on top of a modern and standard framework. ESys.NET is a design environment based on the .NET framework. It takes advantage of advanced programming features which facilitates the integration of external tools. This paper presents a semi-formal verification tool for ESys.NET. Introspection ability is emphasized together with its capabilities to cooperate with third party tools. Introspection is used to retrieve the state of the model during simulation and to check a set of user defined rules. Neither the model nor the simulator is modified by the verification process. Experimentations on an AMBA bus model highlight the effectiveness of this approach
