Codasip and T&VS Deliver Advanced RISC-V Verification Solutions

10 March 2017, BRNO, CZECH Republic – Codasip, a leading RISC-V processor IP provider, and T&VS (Test and Verification Solutions), a leading verification services provider for semiconductor IP, hardware and software, today announced a broad collaboration to accelerate the verification of products based on the Codix-Bk series of RISC-V compliant processor cores.

The partnership ensures companies can be confident selecting the precise RISC-V configuration they require. The combination of Codasip’s IP generation technology and the highly-automated T&VS validated verification flows means that even the most specific configurations can be quickly verified to the highest standards. Such a capability will be essential to fully exploit the flexible, open-source RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA).

“I am extremely pleased to see this robust solution coming into place.”, said Rick O’Connor, Executive Director of the RISC-V Foundation. “It is further evidence of the healthy and rapid growth of the RISC-V ecosystem.”

Interest in the RISC-V ISA has grown incredibly quickly and the principal advantages for design teams are the non-proprietary nature of the ISA, the availability of implementations and infrastructure from a range of suppliers and the design freedom allowed by the RISC-V standard.  However this flexibility poses a challenge for verification. Since a wide range of function/power/performance variants are possible, there is no off-the-shelf set of RISC-V validation tests, no single verification testbench, nor even a single verification flow, to fully verify an implementation.

“For customers that are now committing to RISC-V’s verification and validation have become a top concern, and rightly so.”, said Karel Masarik, CEO, Codasip, “Codasip’s partnership with T&VS allows our customers to benefit from the outstanding capabilities of T&VS as a verification company and the RISC-V UVM environment automation capabilities intrinsic to our IP.”

RISC-V verification becomes a challenge as particular functionality/performance combination that a design requires is not available in an off-the-shelf configuration. In these circumstances someone has to produce a variant of the design (RTL + Software Development Kit (SDK)) and verify it. This is clearly a challenge for RISC-V providers, whether they are Silicon IP (SIP) companies or service organizations within large companies.

“In order to thoroughly and quickly verify a new variant of the RISC-V it is crucial to have a strategy that covers the whole RISC-V family, both at the architectural and micro-architectural levels.” said Mike Bartley, CEO, T&VS, “Working with Codasip removes the guesswork from our strategy since they are able to generate new variants of the cores very rapidly, meaning that we are prepared for just about anything.”

T&VS and University of Bristol to investigate testing of complex Cyber Physical Systems

Bristol, UK, 29th June 2016 –T&VS, a leader in the software test and hardware verification domains, will work with the University of Bristol to develop new engineering methods to test software that controls cyber physical systems (CPS) thanks to funding from Innovate UK.

UoB Logo_2

Developers of CPS have recognised that the current Software Verification and Validation techniques will not cope as CPS become increasingly complex. Hardware verification faced a similar issue 20 years ago and developed new verification techniques to overcome this. Those techniques are now widely adopted and hardware developers are able to verify increasingly complex designs so that they reach the market in a timely fashion and are able to function sufficiently for the target market.

T&VS, who are leading the project, will work with the University of Bristol and end user CPS developers – Thales, Dyson and SCISYS – to better understand how to apply those hardware techniques to the verification of software for CPS.

Dr Mike Bartley, CEO and Founder of T&VS, said:“Cyber physical systems will start to touch every part of our life. From robotic vacuum cleaners and online orders delivered by drone, to autonomous cars. Ensuring such systems are fully tested and safe to use can be both expensive and time consuming and consequently potential barrier to market entry. The project will investigate if techniques successfully adopted in hardware design verification can be adapted to work with complex software.”

The involvement of end users Thales, Dyson and SCISYS is a key to the potential success of the project. All three are developing CPS and have identified testing as a major technical challenge. They will be defining requirements for tooling to enable them to deploy the hardware verification concepts to their respective CPS. T&VS will be developing the tools that the end users will trial to test their CPS.

The University of Bristol has recently developed novel model-based test generation techniques to target specific use cases or requirements far more effectively than conventional methods can.How to apply these techniques to complex real-world CPS will be investigated as part of this collaborative project.

Dr Kerstin Eder, Reader in Design Automation and Verification in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bristol and leader of the verification and validation for safety in robots research theme at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, added: “Model Based Test Generation techniques can significantly improve verification productivity. Achieving coverage closure faster and in an automated fashion saves engineering effort in practice. This project will enrich the University’s research in various ways: it brings new understanding of practical requirements into the University to drive new research; it provides access to real-world usecases; it helps us foster strong and lasting links to industrial partners that work at the leading edge of autonomous systems engineering and verification tool development. The knowledge and technology transfer in this collaboration is an excellent route to impact for our research.”

 

Notes to editors:

Further information about the project can be found here and developers of CPS can contact Mike Bartley if they would like to get involved.

T&VS Win ‘Innovate UK’ Grant to Develop Advanced Verification Methods for Complex Cyber Physical Systems

PRESS RELEASE

Cyber Physical Systems08 March – Bristol, UK.  Test and Verification Solutions (T&VS), a leader in software test and hardware verification solutions, today announced that it has won a grant from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, to develop advanced hardware verification and validation (V&V) techniques that can cope with the increasing size and complexity of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS).

Autonomous vehicles, smart cardiac devices, intelligent power grids, Industry 4.0 manufacturing and the Internet of Things (IoT) are all examples of the new breed of smart cyber physical systems that combine communications and sensory input with machine based decision making to control physical systems.  Tremendous progress has been made in advancing CPS technology over the last five years but the development of new methods in V&V needs to be accelerated to keep pace with these advances.

mike-bartley-ress-image“Smart cyber physical systems are driving innovation in many industries but their size and complexity is stretching our traditional verification and validation methods.” said Dr Mike Bartley, CEO and founder of T&VS.  “Through this early-stage innovation program we expect to create new V&V methods that will help ensure that the next generation of cyber physical systems will meet their requirements and remain dependable, safe and secure, whatever their size and complexity.”

The T&VS project is part of the Innovate UK and Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) competition for funding that is investing up to £580,000 into ‘Software Verification & Validation for Complex Systems’.  The funding is aimed at stimulating innovation throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC) while focusing on the verification and validation (V&V) of two classes of complex systems: Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and systems with emergent behaviours.
