Presentation Title:Achieving Real Verification Reuse: Software Driven
Abstract:While the bottom-up approach offered by UVM constrained random and coverage driven verification revolutionized IP and unit level testing, it doesn’t meet the requirements for SoC level Verification. To fully address SoC-level verification, a solution needs to allow not only for vertical (IP to SoC) reuse and horizontal (cross-platform) reuse, but most importantly it must provide a way to capture and share use cases and deliver a top-down verification approach. By offering an abstract model-based approach Perspec not only enables capture of use cases, but through abstraction makes reuse and sharing of the use cases easy.

  • Abstract model to quickly capture use cases of complex multiprocessor SoCs
  • Ability to share use cases between domain experts (e.g. coherency and low power)
  • Leverage abstract model for faster debug of complex use cases
