Accuracy, Waveforms, And Power

The entire topic of power analysis, estimation, and exploration never ceases to amaze me given that opinions on how to approach this are so varied. It is that diversity of opinions that makes it that much more intriguing. I’ve been particularly interested in how I now regularly hear that users are increasingly interested in taking activity from simulation and emulation and using that to dr... » read more

Capturing Timing Diagrams In Operational SVA

Timing diagrams provide an excellent, intuitive starting point for writing assertions to capture the intended behavior of designs. However, the standard assertion languages SVA and PSL do not provide direct constructs for capturing timing diagrams. This white paper presents Operational SVA – a simple yet powerful SVA library – which allows to develop assertions directly from timing diagrams... » read more
