The application of portable stimulus has been an important point to discuss in the present market. PSS can help to improve the present verification methodology. But there is no definite answer for where to apply it. This article shows how PSS can be applied, what is happening with it and what new techniques to learn. [...]
This article from Mentor Graphics explores how portable stimulus, via Accellera’s Portable Stimulus Standard (PSS), can leverage information captured in a register model to automate creation of block, subsystem, and SoC register-access tests.

Accellera’ s Portable Stimulus Standard (PSS) introduces some new constraint capabilities, in addition to supporting the capabilities that are familiar with in SystemVerilog. This article provides a guided tour of one of these new constraint features, along with examples that highlight their benefits and outlines how to make your constraints more dynamic using portable stimulus.

Whether developing tests for software or hardware, test development seems to follow a pretty predictable process. Portable Stimulus brings some very powerful features to the table in raising the level of abstraction at which test intent can be captured. Because the description is declarative, a PSS description is very easy to reuse, shape, and customize [...]
