The Axiomise Story
Axiomise is a formal verification training, consulting and services company. It has been founded to serve the semiconductor industry in the use of formal verification. Axiomise is truly dedicated to enabling formal for all semiconductor design and verification. The company believes that the only way to make formal mainstream for all design verification is to enable and empower the end user of formal – the hundreds of designers and verification engineers in the semiconductor industry. Axiomise offers cutting edge formal verification consulting, training and services dedicated to enabling formal for all design verification. Learn how to apply formal in a predictable way to achieve high-quality sign-off.
The vision of Axiomise is to enable formal to be used by all design and verification engineers for the right reasons at the right time. Axiomise will realize its vision by directly engaging with its customers to enable them to use formal hands-on with ease and confidence to tape out high-quality verification in a predictable manner. The delicate balance between predictability and quality is often hard to achieve and can be tricky to get it right with formal. Axiomise wants to empower its customers to obtain just that. Axiomise makes this possible through a combination of offerings – from training engineers and managers to providing consulting required for hands-on formal verification planning and execution.

The company has been founded by Dr Ashish Darbari a reputed thought leader in the field of formal verification who has been championing the adoption of formal for over a decade. Dr Darbari brings his passion and experience in using formal for over two decades to Axiomise. Dr Darbari has extensive experience in all formal technologies such as model checking, equivalence checking and theorem proving. He has innovated techniques for applying formal on a range of new problem domains that include security, power and firmware verification.
Dr Darbari has been at the forefront of deploying formal for years. He likes to lead by example and has personally overseen the deployment of formal on over 50 projects in a little over three years – thanks to his technological inventions and an energetic team of engineers in the well-known AVM group at Imagination. Dr Darbari has experience of using formal verification in top organisations in the world including Intel, ARM, General Motors, Imagination and OneSpin Solutions. He has 24 international patents and over two dozen research publications. He is a Fellow of IETE, Fellow of British Computing Society, and senior member of IEEE and ACM. A globe-trotter for over 20 years, Dr Darbari has studied and worked in five countries across Asia, Europe, and North America. He holds a Doctorate in computer science from the University of Oxford (England), a Masters in computational logic from TU Dresden (Germany), and a Bachelor’s in electrical engineering from BIT Mesra (India).
