Title:Horizontally and Vertically Reusable AMBA Fabric UVM Environment with AMBA SVT VIP

Abstract:  This presentation describes a vertically and horizontally reusable AMBA fabric UVM environment with Synopsys AMBA SVT VIPs. Three AMBA fabric verification reuse challenges are discussed and solved. First is how to connect the DUT and AMBA VIP; second is how to support the UVM Register Abstraction Layer (RAL) sequence with AMBA VIP; third is how to dynamically configure the AMBA functional coverage. A debug method with AMBA VIP debug tool protocol analyzer is also introduced, it is especially helpful to trace complicated AXI transactions like out of order, read and write wrap and interleave.
