As a "real world" example, AMD is proving the FPU of its processors with
ACL2, which is a functional subset of Common Lisp. However, the FPU
themselves are not written in a functionnal language but in hardware
language translated in Register Transfer Language (RTL). A translator is
used for RTL->ACL2 translation and then proving.

If I remember correctly, Coq has been used in Cristal research team to
prove part(?) of OCaml type system.

Yours,
david

PS: I'm neither a specialist in this area.
