Why Portable Stimulus?

Mike Bartley
Founder & CEO, T&VS

The Accellera Portable Stimulus Standard (PSS) is an important step to achieving improved verification efficiency through both improved abstraction and reuse across hierarchy, project to project, and platform. Cadence provides Perspec, the #1 tool in the industry, and we see strong interest from our mutual customers to adopt PSS. We started talking about PSS with Cadence in 2017, and have been working with Perspec since then to learn more about PSS and expand our offering.

What is unique about the T&VS PSS offering?

During our work with customers, we’ve implemented a lot of reuse through VIP at the block level.  Having done a lot of work at the SoC level, test reuse has been a key barrier to productivity.  We see the major impact of PSS is at the SoC level, making stimulus portable across families of SoCs.  It provides a way to abstract tests to make reuse more achievable across more dimensions of the project.

We also provide trained teams who can deploy the Perspec System Verifier PSS technology to get customers up and running a lot more quickly. And therefore to realize the benefits and reduce time to market significantly.

T&VS are ideally placed to provide expert, independent advice to our clients on the use of PSS and to undertake verification projects based on the growing number of tools that support the standard. Find out more.
