Divide-and-conquer is a natural way to cope with the complexity of automatic testbench generation. The key to developing an effective divide-and-conquer approach is to identify the partitioning boundaries where interactions among divided components are minimized. The authors propose a novel design decomposition scheme and show how it can help improve the performance of constraint solving for test generation.
