The common view of model checking is as a supplementary methodology to improve the quality of simulation-based functional verification. Traditional model checking relies on BDD- or combinational-SAT-based approaches for search. The authors discuss the potential to apply a sequential SAT solver in model checking, comparing its performance against BDD- and combinational-SAT-based approaches.
