There is only one book available in the market which was published in the first week of December 2004 which concentrates mainly on the language analysis and tool consumption of assertions, while this book concentrates on the basic language in the first two chapters and gets into pricatical examples of real ASIC designs. The book provides a library of pre-written checkers that any one can use out of the box. It also shows engineers how to verify different types of design blocks with assertions. In summary this book will be a practical guide for ABV methodology and not just a syntax primers.

SystemVerilog language consists of three categories of features -- Design, Assertions and Testbench. Assertions add a whole new dimension to the ASIC verification process. Engineers are used to writing testbenches in verilog that help verify their design. Verilog is a procedural language and is very limited in capabilities to handle the complex ASICs built today. SystemVerilog assertions (SVA) is a declarative language. The temporal nature of the language provides excellent control over time and allows mulitple processes to execute simultaneously. This provides the engineers a very strong tool to solve their verification problems. The language is still new and the thinking is very different from the user's perspective when compared to standard verilog language. There is not enough expertise or intellectual property available as of today in the field. While the language has been defined very well, there is no practical guide that shows how to use the language to solve real verification problems. This book is a practical guide that will help people to understand this new language and adopt assertion based verification methodology quickly.
