The era of digital electronics has witnessed many design techniques and approaches aimed at keeping the pace with the increasing number of transistors on a silicon chip. For decades, this trend in silicon technology has been closely following Moore's law. In spite of facilities like powerful Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools, high-level abstraction design techniques and advancement in IP-core libraries, the design-productivity gap is increasing. The complexity of electronic systems is also increasing and so do the faults and errors seen in these systems.
