Comprehensive coverage measurement should guide an effective testbench generation approach. Today, feedback from coverage to test generation often requires manual work; it is desirable to implement a framework that automates this feedback process. The authors propose a genetic-algorithm-based evolution framework for testbench generation. It enables small test programs to evolve and effectively capture target corner cases based on the feedback from coverage measurement.
