--- Comment #1 from Staf Verhaegen <staf at fibraservi.eu> ---
Another thing to verify is that you don't depend on the verilog initial
A difference between FPGA and ASIC is that most FPGAs embed the initial state
of the registers in their bitstream and on ASIC registers will have a random
value after power-up. Or said otherwise for ASICs setting a value of a register
in the initial section is ignored.

I guess, but am not 100% sure that in nmigen you can only have problems if you
use reset_less signals as you will always assume a reset is applied to an ASIC
after power-up. One of the problems is that pysim has the FPGA behaviour on
reset_less signals and not the ASIC one. That was a few months ago so I don't
know if that has changed. This means that pysim/cxxsim unit tests may not
reveal problems for ASICs with reset_less signals.
