IEEE 1801 UPF

Low power design of Integrated circuits is the most critical aspect of today’s chip design. As the number of portable consumer electronics products increased exponentially the power consumption and battery life of the product has become the most influential selling factor. As a result many new low power design techniques has been invented and used widely. But the current hardware description languages didn’t aid the designer to specify the power intent of the design. Even if it is made to support it requires rework on the existing designs and prevents code reuse. Hence a new language is required which would convey the designer’s power intent to the tools. Unified Power Format which is also called in short UPF solved the problem.

Assertions

SVA is an integral part of IEEE-1800 SystemVerilog languages focusing on the temporal aspects of specification, modeling and verification. SVA allows sophisticated, multi-cycle assertions and functional checks to be embedded in HDL code. SVA allows simple HDL Boolean expressions to be built into complex definitions of design behavior, which can be used for assertions, functional coverage, debug and formal verification.

ABV UVM

uvm

SVA is an integral part of IEEE-1800 SystemVerilog language focusing on temporal aspect of specification, modeling and verification. SVA allows sophisticated, multi-cycle assertions and functional checks to be embedded in HDL code. SVA also allows such cycle accurate, protocol checking to exist as independent entities that can be bound to a typical UVC and/or DUT. SVA allows simple HDL Boolean expressions to be composed into complex definitions of design behavior that can be used for assertions, constraints, functional coverage, and debug. Well-written assertions and assumptions can also be used in a formal verification flow with a Model Checker. To demonstrate, with examples, value of SVA in a UVM flow.

Art of Debugging with UVM

Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) is the industry standard verification
methodology for Verification using SystemVerilog (SV). UVM provides means of doing
verification in a well-defined and structured way. It is a culmination of well-known ideas,
thoughts and best practices. Given the major adoption of UVM across the globe and across the
industry, advanced users are looking for tips and tricks to improve their productivity. While
UVM does define a structured framework for building complex testbenches, given the strong
OOP nature of UVM (and underlying SystemVerilog) and the relatively less familiar audience
(as many Design-Verification, DV engineers come from hardware, electronics background and
not a heavy Software background), it gets tricky for users to debug UVM based testbenches
when things do not work as expected. CVC’s “Art of Debugging with UVM” course gives you
hands-on experience with some of the typical UVM debugging scenarios. Split into compile
and run-time the course covers the breadth and depth of UVM use cases so that attendees are
guaranteed to become more productive with UVM at the end of the course.

UVM Level1

Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) is the industry standard Verification methodology for Verification using SystemVerilog (SV). UVM provides a mean of doing verification in a well-defined and structured way. It is a culmination of well-known ideas, thoughts and best practices. It is also supported by a standard set of base classes to help building structured verification environment faster. More details about the standard can be found at: http://www.go2uvm.org
