About the author:
This SVA 4th Edition evolved from many years of practical experiences, training, and studies in the processes / design / verification / and language worlds. This book is an excellent reference in the process and application of SVA. It was created by four authors who came from very strong technical backgrounds, thus putting a lot of synergy in the creation of this book. Ben has many years of design, synthesis, and verification of digital designs; he authored 12 books on VHDL, Verilog, design processes, VMM, PSL, and SVA, and has taught several classes in these fields. Srini worked at Intel as a verification engineer, and at Synopsys as an application and verification field engineer; he is now CTO of CVC Pvt Ltd, a high-end design-verification consulting company, and provides training in SV, SVA, VMM, OVM/UVM, VHDL, consulting for companies, and sales representation for many EDA products. Ajeetha has many years of experience in design and verification using VHDL, SV, SVA, VMM, OVM/UVM; she is the founder, CEO and Managing Director of CVC. She has also been consultant for many EDA companies and verification turnkey projects across India, Israel & Taiwan. Lisa worked at Cadence as a methodology and product engineer supporting assertions in simulation, formal verification, and emulation. She participated in the SVA standardization work for the IEEE 1800-2009 release. She also managed an organization that was responsible for the definition, verification, and support of Telecom IC's, LAN IC's, and ATM IC's at Lucent Microelectronics. She now is a technical marketing manager at Real Intent.

SystemVerilog Assertions Handbook, 4th Edition is a follow-up book to the popular and highly recommended third edition, published in 2013. This 4th Edition is updated to include:
1. A new section on testbenching assertions, including the use of constrained-randomization, along with an explanation of how constraints operate, and with a definition of the most commonly used constraints for verifying assertions.
2. More assertion examples and comments that were derived from users' experiences and difficulties in using assertions; many of these issues were reported in newsgroups, such as the and the
3. Links to new papers on the use of assertions, such as in a UVM environment.
4. Expected updates on assertions in the upcoming IEEE 1800-2018 Standard for SystemVerilog Unified Hardware Design, Specification, and Verification Language. The SVA goals for this 1800-2018 were to maintain stability and not introduce substantial new features. However, a few minor enhancements were identified and are expected to be approved. The 3rd Edition of this book was based on the IEEE 1800-2012.
