When it comes to system level verification, the relationship between hardware and software is not that good. Hardware is capable of running any software when the chips were simple. But now it is an impossible verification task for SoCs which contains deeply embedded processors. When verification targets such as power are added, it becomes a lot more complicated. In this situation, a better way to perform verification is by applying portable stimulus. This helps to generate arbitrary software to perform verification. PSS can play a significant role in this process. This article discusses about how portable stimulus standard can be used to perform verification while running software.
