Is Software Necessary?


Hardware must be capable of running any software. While that might have been a good mantra when chips were relatively simple, it becomes an impossible verification task when dealing with SoCs that contain dozens of deeply embedded processors. When does it become necessary to use production software and what problems can that get you into? When verification targets such as power are added, it... » read more

Accessing Registers With UVM-RAL


As a digital design or verification engineer you know that certain features or configurations of the device can be achieved by programming some registers to set values. For example, a 32-bit register can have several fields within it and each field can represent a particular feature that can be configured. The device then reads that register and uses that information to change settings or modes... » read more

Updated UVM Cookbook Supports IEEE 1800.2 Standard And Emulation


I’m happy to announce that we at Mentor have just released a fully-updated version of our popular UVM Cookbook, which is available online here. Cookbook Overview Diagram The Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) is a standard library of SystemVerilog classes that supports a modular, reusable testbench architecture for constrained-random functional verification. Meanwhile, Mentor’... » read more

Get Ready For Verification 3.0


Jim Hogan, managing partner of Vista Ventures, LLC, is perhaps the best-known investor in the EDA space. Recently, he has been focusing time and attention on verification startups, including cloud technology company Metrics, and Portable Stimulus pioneer Breker Verification Systems. This adds to his longer-term commitment to formal verification with OneSpin Solutions. These companies are part ... » read more

Inside UVM, Take Three


The reason why UVM came up with such phases is because synchronization among all design-testbench was necessary. Using Verilog and VHDL, verification engineers did not have facilities such as clocking block or run phases. Now, it is very important that the time at which test vectors applied from test-bench reaches the Design Under Test(DUT) at the same time. If timing for different signals vari... » read more

Going Deep Or Broad With Formal?


Whether to apply [getkc id="33" comment="formal verification"] technology to semiconductor design broadly or deeply is a tough question. It hinges on what is the best way to achieve maximum ROI. Do you want to identify hard to find bugs, and get a certain level of confidence about a block? Where should the effort be placed? Is it by going deep, meaning a team of specialists or experts must b... » read more
