The ultimate goal in setting up a test bench, adding assertions and monitors, and running simulations is to find bugs. A typical cycle of bug hunting consists of detecting bug symptoms, investigating the root causes, fixing the bugs, updating the design, and preventing the bug from appearing in future revisions. In this chapter we will study methodologies and procedures practiced at various junctions of the bug-hunting cycle.

The first hint of a bug comes when simulation outputs ...
