Due to the high cost of correcting errors in a final product, there is a growing impetus in industry towards methodologies that can yield correct designs in the first manufacturing run. Design validation methodologies that combine simulation techniques with formal reasoning can be effective in ensuring correct operation of software and hardware systems. We show why simulation is necessary to complement formal mathematical reasoning in verifying certain classes of custom designed circuits. We present a validation methodology for PowerPC custom memories based on symbolic simulation
