  1. Hi there A register can have different RTL implementation based on access_mode. ie., When a register REG_1 is read in backdoor, actual HDLPATH of the register would point to 'top.abc.dout'. When a register REG_1 is written in backdoor, actual HDLPATH of the register would point to 'top.abc.dout_temp' We want to program different hdlpaths to REG_1 based on access mode (READ or WRITE). Does UVM_REG provide ready-made hookups or methods like add_hdl_path_slice() methods to setup different hdlpaths to READ/WRITE backdoor access? (Inside the DPI based backdoor access itself?) I checked that write_backdoor and read_backdoor methods need to be overwritten to setup different HDLPATHs based on READ/WRITE access modes. But this involves overriding string based DPI backdoor access factory methods. I'm looking for an alternative here, if it really exists. Suggestions to this requirement, very much appreciated. Best regards Balasubramanian G
  2. Hi there We want to traverse through all registers present in a UVM_REG_BLOCK based on increasing address. We have the following pseudocode: model.NTB_DB.get_registers(total_regs_ntb); foreach (total_regs_ntb) begin total_regs_btb.write(status, wdata, .parent(this)); end But, the above source code does not go through the registers space based on address. ie., When I have a 2-dimensional array of registers, array indices are chosen first(not addresses). Any help to workaround this problem is appreciated. Best regards Balasubramanian G
  3. Hi All, I have a sequence sending a created and randomized item using `uvm_send. The driver receives an item using try_next_item. Upon receiving, it drives the item and calls item_done. Using debug message after item_done, I can clearly see that item_done is called and returned but `uvm_send in sequence is still blocked and not doing forward to send next item (it implements a loop). Can anyone help me with possible reasons why `uvm_send would not return even when driver has called item_done and come out of item_done. Thanks in advance! Ninad

  6. I don't know if I'm posting in the right forum section, so I apologize in advance. I have a couple of questions about the UVM-ML architecture. For reference, I will be using the sc-sv unified hierarchy example, which is provided with UVM-ML-1.4.2. 1) In the sctop.cpp file, which looks like this: #include "uvm_ml.h" #include "ml_tlm2.h" #include "producer.h" #include "consumer.h" using namespace uvm; using namespace uvm_ml; // The environment component contains a producer and a consumer class env : public uvm_component { public: producer prod; consumer cons; env(sc_module_name nm) : uvm_component(nm) , prod("prod") , cons("cons") { cout << "SC env::env name= " << this->name() << endl; } void before_end_of_elaboration() { cout << "SC env::before_end_of_elaboration " << this->name() << endl; std::string full_initiator_b_socket_name = ML_TLM2_REGISTER_INITIATOR(prod, tlm_generic_payload, b_isocket , 32); cout << "SC env registered " << full_initiator_b_socket_name << endl; std::string full_initiator_nb_socket_name = ML_TLM2_REGISTER_INITIATOR(prod, tlm_generic_payload, nb_isocket , 32); cout << "SC env registered " << full_initiator_nb_socket_name << endl; std::string full_target_socket_name = ML_TLM2_REGISTER_TARGET(cons, tlm_generic_payload, tsocket , 32); cout << "SC env registered " << full_target_socket_name << endl; } ... UVM_COMPONENT_UTILS(env) }; UVM_COMPONENT_REGISTER(env) // Top level component instantiates env class sctop : public uvm_component { public: env sc_env; sctop(sc_module_name nm) : uvm_component(nm) , sc_env("sc_env") { cout << "SC sctop::sctop name= " << this->name() << " type= " << this->get_type_name() << endl; } ... UVM_COMPONENT_UTILS(sctop) }; UVM_COMPONENT_REGISTER(sctop) #ifdef NC_SYSTEMC NCSC_MODULE_EXPORT(sctop) #else int sc_main(int argc, char** argv) { return 0; } UVM_ML_MODULE_EXPORT(sctop) #endif What is the NC_SYSTEMC define and where is it used? What is UVM_ML_MODULE_EXPORT() and when is it used? 2) In file test.sv: import uvm_pkg::*; `include "uvm_macros.svh" import uvm_ml::*; `include "producer.sv" `include "consumer.sv" ... // Test instantiates the "env" and "testbench" which has a foreign child class test extends uvm_env; env sv_env; testbench tb; ... task run_phase(uvm_phase phase); `uvm_info(get_type_name(),$sformatf("SV test::%s %s", phase.get_name(), get_full_name()),UVM_LOW); while (1) begin #1 uvm_ml::synchronize(); end endtask ... `uvm_component_utils(test) endclass What is the uvm_ml::synchronize() function and when is appropriate to use it? If there are documents where I can find out more please mention them.
  7. Hi there From the UVM users guide, a register read access can be executed as reg_model.BLK1.REG_FILE1.REG_1.read(status, rdata); But this mandates us to know the hierarchy of the register instantiation. ie., 'reg_model.BLK1.REG_FILE1' needs to be known to execute a read on register 'REG_1'. Is it possible to perform read/write access based on address instead of this hierarchy? Something like: generic_uvm_read (.address(0x0), rdata); In otherwords, we need not even know the register type or register instantiation hierarchy to issue a read access to that register. Can this be performed with UVM_REG? Requesting thoughts here. Best regards Balasubramanian G

  9. Hi there I couldn't find enough information about capturing whitebox information with respect to a register defined in IP-XACT standard. Could this be done somehow? The closest that could be found was WHITEBOX information with respect to models.(not registers) Though the register definition can be captured in IP-XACT XML, there isn't proper way to capture RTL implementation of a register in IP-XACT. Capturing RTL implementation of a register in IP-XACT XML would enable us to stitch UVM_REG backdoor access. (without vendorExtensions) We feel the urge/need to enhance IP-XACT standard regarding the same. Requesting thoughts regarding the same. Best regards Balasubramanian G
  10. Hi there IPXACT needs to capture array of registers properly in a design. Currently there is only one tag ''spirit:dim" to represent an array of registers. This does not enable us to capture an array of register effectively. Consider the following cases: 1. An array of registers can be one dimensional with each element offset by offset address 0x10. 2. An Array of multidimensional registers something like this: register_1[0][0] -> 0x0 register_1[0][1] -> 0x4 register_1[1][0] -> 0x10 register_1[1][1] -> 0x14 ... likewise Is there any way to capture just the address relationship to an array instance within IP-XACT XML tags? (Without using vendorExtensions tag?) We have not been able to capture the above said information inside IPXACT XML.(using only IP-XACT tags) Requesting thoughts regarding the same. Best regards Balasubramanian G
  11. Hi, When I use the automation of register model by register assistant, in the video, it use the command 'vreguvm - gui' to translate the .csv file to register package. But When I input this command, it reminds me 'command not found'. what's the reason of that? The version I use is 10.2c_2. Do I need to install some package? If need, please tell me. I will ask the CAD administrator in my company to install it. And where can I get the csv templates mentioned in the mentor's video? Thanks

  14. I am learning UVM. So far I was able to create the following environment for my DUT. Agents with monitors, drivers and sequences for all of the input-output interfaces from my DUT. A top level UVM env. Sequences to send valid data to DUT. I yet to implement scoreboard. I'm having some trouble to understand how to handle scenarios like following: For one of my tb->dut interfaces, TB needs to wait for an event (or transaction) from DUT. Once it receives the transaction from DUT, TB needs to send back a response. What is the best way to implement this? How can I monitor DUT transaction from sequence? I assume I need to wait for an event or something similar which will tell me that DUT has a new valid output in its interface. My agents have monitors which will monitor any new output signals from DUT. So, do I need to somehow bring this data from agent's monitor to my test/sequence class? I know that monitor has an analysis port and it can be used to send received data to scoreboard for checking. So, do I need to use the same port to read DUT output data, create valid response and send it to DUT? Thanks!
  15. hi, all, I'm a newer in learning UVM. With the support of many UVM experts, we can find many examples for learnning UVM. However, when I tried to have a taste on some examples using VCS to compile them, the Makefile is a headache for me. Could you please let me know how to write a good Makefile for compilation and running simulation in VCS? Thank you in advance! Liya

  20. Dear all, As we close in on delivering UVM 1.2 to the engineering community now is the time for you to read the docs, review the code, test the functionality. Or as they say forever hold your peace..... Once approved changing documentation requires another full review so really please do give your feedback ASAP. As a UVM user it is in your interest that UVM meets your requirements and your opinion is considered. There is a list of issues we know about within the Mantis database: http://www.eda.org/svdb/my_view_page.php If you want to view the code for a particular branch from sourceforge you can do so from your browser. http://sourceforge.net/p/uvm/code/ref/master/branches/ On the left click ""More Branches" UVM 1.2 will be built from the UVM_1_2 branch: http://sourceforge.net/p/uvm/code/ci/UVM_1_2/tree/ At the time of writing the latest HTML docs are generated from RC4 branch: http://sourceforge.net/p/uvm/code/ci/UVM_1_2_RELEASE_RC4_WITHHTMLDOC/tree/ It is just as easy to grab the latest code for you to run with your own projects for testing. A simple script can look like: #!/bin/csh -f mkdir $1; cd $1 ; git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/uvm/code ; cd code ; git branch --track $1 origin/$1 ; git checkout $1 ; By passing in your branch name to the script it will checkout that particular branch for you. git_uvm.csh UVM_1_2 ; You can give feedback via your Accellera representation or local EDA person or provide feedback here. Time is of the essence so act today. thanks,
  21. Can anyone here recommend me chapters needed to read in questasim user guide so as to simulate uvm systemverilog environment ,, let's have assumption that I have no knowledge about simulator commands interface ,,, thanks in advance
  22. Why the one need to set rand variables in configuration classes ,,, my knowledge is that Virtual Sequencer is the only component whose responsibility to generate random variables, isn't it ?
  23. What is the difference between configuration object and configuration space in UVM?
  24. Hi, I'm using IUS 12.20.004 and trying to probe the UVM hierarchy for post processing in Simvision. Is it possible to probe variables of a task or function which is inside a class? I followed this guide: http://www.cadence.com/rl/resources/white_papers/post_process_uvm_wp.pdf I'm able to see data members of a class (the test class for example), but if there's a task or function inside the class, it isn't probed so I can't see its variables in the waves. Thanks, Eli
  25. Hi Guys, I am using UVM Register model to mimmick RTL's register implementation. Some registers are not implemented in RTL which are going to be connected to output port of some other module. I have got a HDL path of register as an output port declaration of some module. Something like: The HDL path is: "tb_top.dut_u.interrupt_module_u.o_ext_interrupt" o_ext_interrupt is declared as output port inside interrupt_module, which is not connected to any other wire or register. Can this output port's value be changed by writing to it via UVM BACKDOOR ? I am using following API: register_name.write(status,data,UVM_BACKDOOR,default_map); I dont see any change in value in the register. I think it is happening because the destination (o_ext_interrupt) is output of the module. I am using Cadence's simulator: irun. Please help if anyone is aware of such issue. Regards, Vismay.
