Statistical Guarantees of Performance for MIMO Designs

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Sources of noise such as quantization, introduce randomness into Register Transfer Level (RTL) designs of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) systems. Performance of these MIMO RTL designs is typically quantified by metrics averaged over simulations. In this paper, the authors introduce a formal approach to compute these metrics with high confidence. They define best, bounded and average case performance metrics as properties in a probabilistic temporal logic. They then use probabilistic model checking to verify these properties for MIMO RTL and thereby guarantee the statistical performance.
