Simulation must find the majority of functional problems with your circuit before it is committed to hardware. It is extremely important that your simulation code stresses the hardware so that all potential bugs can be determined as early as possible.

5.1 Simulate the Corner Cases

An important concept in simulation is to simulate the corner cases. This means that the simulation should test conditions that will be difficult to control in a real situation because they occur when the hardware reaches certain extremes. These corner cases include empty memories, ...
