Boosting Regression Throughput By Reusing Setup Phase Simulation

How to leverage the initial setup phase simulation for different tests.


This paper discusses how to write a design so the common initial setup phase simulation is done once and then used as a foundation to run different tests later on, including the ability to change test stimulus to simulate different test behaviors. It also discusses what type of designs are appropriate for this methodology and what a designer can do to make his/her design suitable for it. Also covered: the constraints that need to be followed in order for this methodology to work and the design factors that might prevent a designer or verification team from adopting this methodology (and how to overcome them).
