Presentation Title: Continuous Integration for FPGA Design and Verification
Abstract: The Jenkins Continuous Integration server has been used by software developers, but can be applied to FPGA design and verification as well. Using it provides convenient “push-button” build and simulation regression. This paper summarises the implementation and experiences of using Jenkins CI for FPGA development

  • Jenkins CI can be used for FPGA development
  • It allows easy-to-use build and regression environments to be made
  • Using it can help FPGA teams keep on top of complex and rapidly changing projects
Biography Alan Fitch started his career within the Philips Semiconductors Systems Laboratory, working on a wide range of audio and video topics. He then joined Doulos, training and consultancy company, and taught VHDL, Verilog, SystemVerilog, UVM, and SystemC. While there he actively developed courses including Expert VHDL, and contributed to the Accellera SystemC Language Working Group. In 2013 he joined Ericsson TV, working on Verification of complex FPGAs for video compression, using SystemVerilog and UVM.
