Presentation Title:Low Power Verification with Graph-Based Portable Stimulus
Abstract:Many aspects of low-power design can be checked by static and formal methods. However, ensuring that chip functionality continues to work properly across all legal power states requires simulation. Often this is accomplished with directed tests using hand-written manipulations of the power domains. This talk presents an automated solution. When a graph-based scenario model captures the key use cases for the design, an overlay graph can define the full range of legal power states. It is then possible to automatically generate a set of test cases to ensure that the chip functions as intended as power domains turn and off. These test cases satisfy Accellera’s requirement for portable stimulus because they can be generated for simulation, hardware platforms, and silicon in the lab.

  • Today’s chips have very complex low-power design techniques
  • Verification requires manipulating power domains while running realistic use-case scenarios
  • Graph-based scenario models and portable stimulus can do this
