Memory consistency models define the rules and guarantees about the ordering and visibility of memory references on multithreaded CPUs and systems-on-chip (SoCs). PipeCheck offers a methodology and automated tool for verifying that a particular microarchitecture correctly implements the consistency model required by its architectural specification.
