A netlist is nothing but a textual description of a circuit made of components in VLSI design. Netlists are connectivity information and provide nothing more than instances, nets, and perhaps some attributes. They are usually considered to be hardware description languages such as Verilog, VHDL, or any one of several specific languages designed for input to simulators.
Even before doing any physical work on the PCB, netlists are quite beneficial during the testing process. Engineers can use them to run these checks and find any erroneous or missing connections. Additionally, nodes, instances, and possibly even specific features of the components involved are provided through netlists.
