System-Level Coverage Closure with Graph-Based Portable Stimulus

In his forthcoming talk at DVClub Europe on Tuesday 1st December, Adnan Hamid (CTO and Co-Founder) Breker Verification Systems will discuss using graph based portable stimulus in system level coverage closure.

Coverage metrics are a key for effective chip verification, but many types of coverage tend to focus on the implementation rather than the verification intent. This talk introduces system-level coverage metrics that are captured by the graph-based scenario models used to drive a portable stimulus solution as defined by Accellera.

In addition to the higher level of abstraction provided by system-level coverage, the nature of a graph means that all paths can be analyzed and closure is guaranteed for all coverage defined by the graph. It is possible to automatically generate a set of test cases that hit all system-level coverage metrics, including complete exercise of all corner cases in standard protocols. System-level coverage results can be exported as SystemVerilog coverage so that it can be merged with other metrics.

About DVClub

The principal goal of DVClub Europe is to have fun while helping build the verification community through regular educational and networking events.  Attendance is free and can be in-person by attending one of three European venues or via remote access.  Attendance is open to all non-service provider semiconductor professionals but registration is essential as these sessions are often over-subscribed.  DVClub Europe is coordinated by TVS with the support from a number of sponsors.
