Ensuring correctness of execution of complex multi-core processor systems deployed in the field remains to this day an extremely challenging task. The major part of this effort is concentrated on design verification, where different pre- and post-silicon techniques are used to guarantee that devices behave exactly as stated in the specification. Unfortunately, the performance of even state-of-the-art validation tools lags behind the growing complexity of multi-core designs. Therefore, subtle bugs still slip into released components, causing incorrect computational results, or even compromising the security of the end-user systems.
