Conference:Verification Futures 2017 (click here to see full programme)
Speaker:Adam Rose (Product Marketing Manager, Verification), Mentor Graphics
Presentation Title:Testbench Automation
Abstract:In the past two decades, the industry has converged on two complementary strategies to verify increasingly complex SoCs : the reuse of testbenches from subsystem level to SoC level, and the use of advanced verification techniques such constrained random, assertions, and verification management. The key technology that enables these two strategies is the UVM. This session will introduce three new technologies which significantly reduce the time to create a reusable testbench infrastructure for an integrated comprehensive flow that significantly improves the efficiency of the whole testbench creation process with UVM, VIP & Portable Stimulus.

  • Learn about a new UVM code generation technology to rapidly build reusable testbench infrastructure
  • How to use VIP to shorten the bring up time for industry standard protocols
  • How Portable Stimulus shortens the time to create efficient, systematic scenario-level stimulus
