  2. What is the difference between "uvm sequence library" and "virtual sequence" ? Are these same in usage or different ?
  3. I am trying to verify 8 bit RW registers and in some of the registers 4 bits are RESERVED lets say [3:0] . My bit bash sequence tries to write in these constant bit and flags me a mismatch error in the DUT and Mirrored Value. How do i stop my bit bash sequence from checking these RESERVED bits of a register. Thanks for your help
  4. To All Design and DV Engineers! Xilinx Vivado 2020.1 Supports UVM 1.2 and many features of Systemverliog. It supports the same in WebPack (Freeware) Version. There are some limitations on side of assertion cover properties but rest it compile complete SV and UVM including constraints and randomization. Learning UVM without hands-on is difficult. I believe this is opportunity for students, engineers and hobbyists to skill up without relying on paid or online tools as now you can run UVM on your system. For getting started, even though there are many UVM generators, I believe the starters need
  5. Hello All, Please tell me the difference between transaction class and uvm_sequence_item class? Please provide me the clarity on the get_sequence_id method in uvm_sequence_item class Please provide me the clarity on the accept_tr , end_tr, start_tr in uvm_transaction class
  6. Hi, I know this will sound weird, but I will ask anyway :D I have recently completed my first ASIC design(Front end and functional verification). Although I used some SystemVerilog constructs like functions and tasks and some other stuff, but really I verified whole digital part without UVM. My question is: What are the advantages of UVM, and why UVM is needed in the first place, as it seems that tasks and functions can verify any design(it seems only, but I am not so much experienced). Will learned members shed some light on it? Thanks in advance and best wishes in fi
  7. I am new to UVM and SystemVerilog. For an effective debugging, I wanted to log my transactions coming from the DUT to the monitor into a text file. Since monitor converts into the transaction format, it becomes easy to log the transactions from monitor but I could not find a workaround to do this task. Can someone help with a solution to this problem? Currently, i am using the AHB protocol and I need to keep track of those AHB transactions coming from the DUT. I need to record the address, Read/Write, count, Data to be read/written and time stamps.

  9. Hi All, I am facing an issue: One of the register field is configured as : field_a.configure(this, 12, 17, "RO", 0, 12'h0, 1, 0, 1); field_a.set_compare(UVM_NO_CHECK); While doing a reset test, first I reset model then start test. But test fails with : UVM_ERROR -- value read from DUT (0x0000000080001e00) does not match mirrored value (0x00000000XxxXfe00) Basically the fields declared as RO and UVM_NO_CHECK goes X ? Any idea what I am missing or doing wrong ? Thanks.
  10. Hi, How to handle memories wide 8 bits in my register model when register map is built with 32 bits width? Thank you Kristina

    UVM-ML Open Architecture - version 1.11 Enabling Multi-Language and Multi-Framework Verification Jan, 2020 General Overview Universal Verification Methodology Multi-Language (UVM-ML) provides a modular solution for integrating verification components written in different languages into a unified and coordinated verification environment. It consists of an open source library that enables such integrations, and can be extended to support additional languages and methodologies. This release of the UVM-ML implementation is the result of collaboration work between Advance
  12. In my testbench I have two background sequences (call them S1 and S2) perform register access and a test that has multiple threads ( call them T1 to T7) also performing register access on the same shared bus. T1 through T7 need to lock the sequencer in order to perform multi-cycle transactions on the CPU bus. The scenario is S1 issues a write, resulting in arb_sequence_q.size == 1 and arb_sequence_q[0].request == SEQ_TYPE_REQ in the same simulation tick, T1 through T7 issue lock requests. arb_sequence_q.size() == 8 and arb_sequence_q[0] is still the S1 request S2 issues a re
  13. 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 jus
  14. Hello, I was wondering if are there any resources (papers, blogs, posts, best practices) about methodologies to implement UVM RAL for "large" designs (>100K registers and 50K rams)? I tried to do some research online but most of the results never cover "large" designs. I have experience using RAL and doing some customisation to make it work in a particular environment (callbacks, maps, defining specialised registers, sequences) but most of them were "little" (1K regs and 100 rams) I'm interested on any information about aspects such as: Reg model re-usability and portab
  15. Hi, The purpose of this discussion is to understand different possibilities by which the simulation performance, memory usage can be increased. Scoreboard as we understand needs the data/packets/frames etc to be stored/buffered to do a comparison with the actual data out. This works out fine when we have small sized array ranging from few bytes to few thousands of bytes.. However imagine, if we have 100 thousands of bytes and above and there is a need to store them and lets say multiple of such lanes/flows , then this would take a hit on the simulation performance. And this gets
  16. Hi All, I am a beginner in the field of hardware verification (1.5 yrs experience only). I have done couple of projects in UVM related to IPs such as UART and GPON. Now, i want to take up the next challenging (due to it's huge state space) self project - UVM based verification of a microprocessor. But i am unaware as to how should i begin? I searched the Web and there is so much material that i am totally confused. Can anybody share what should be my approach? How should i begin? Which microprocessor i should chose? From where can i get the DUT processor code? If anyone has implemented su
  17. Hi All, I am working in verification. Where i have to generate reg_block for all the IP's using IPXACT. also top level reg_block which instantiates all the IP level register block using IPXACT. But i am not interested in Ports/Businterface/component. Please advise me what is the best method to do it. Thanks Saravanan
  18. Hi , To whom may correspond I think there is some kind of error in the UVM 1.1d register model. I have been experimenting with the UVM register model and i have seen the following code in uvm_reg_map.svh task uvm_reg_map::do_bus_write (uvm_reg_item rw, uvm_sequencer_base sequencer, uvm_reg_adapter adapter); uvm_reg_addr_t addrs[$]; uvm_reg_map system_map = get_root_map(); int unsigned bus_width = get_n_bytes(); uvm_reg_byte_en_t byte_en = -1; uvm_reg_map_info map_info;
  19. I am new to Synopsys VCS. I have been trying to simulate the testbench developed in UVM using VCS in command mode (Linux environment). But, I am not able to get the info displays and the output displays. I am have written the makefile using perl scritps. Can soemeone please tell me where I can find the detail example of using the options in my makefile to run it succesfully while viewing the output displays in command mode
  20. Saw the UVM-SystemC-1.0-beta1 download link, try to install it, but according to the INSTALL file, I can't find "configure" in the package. How could I install it?
  21. I can't find any example in the uvm-systemc preview package which DUT has clock and reset signals. I tried to create clock with sc_clock in sc_main and connected it my dut's clock signal. But it looks the simulation will never finish. So would someone let me know what's the right way to handle the clock and reset signals?
  22. Hello All, I am working on SystemC-UVM based testbench. I have created UVM based testbench using UVM code generator. Here I am using three different agents in UVM generator which I have defined as a part of the configuration file which was further being provided to UVM code generator to generate test bench skeleton. And here, in of the agent driver, the code snippet is as: // Drive the inputs of the DUT UVM_INFO(this->name(),"Driving transaction:",0); req.print(); // TODO put your code here But when I try to read the value in my test-cas

  24. Hi why does phase.find_by_name(.name(uvm_main_phase::get().get_name()), .stay_in_scope(0)); from run_phase and uvm_pkg::uvm_phase run_phase = phase.find_by_name(.name(uvm_run_phase::get().get_name()), .stay_in_scope(0)); from main_phase return null. Is this intentional? I have created a sample example to check, or you can use the attached file as well. https://www.edaplayground.com/x/5Py7 test.svh
  25. Let's say I have the following DUT. The UVM environment contains a chain of models/predictors. Input data flows down this chain and generates the expected CHIP output, which is compared to actual. Pros: verifies top-level functionality. Cons: Does not verify block level functionality. A good start, but I'd like to also verify the blocks in a system setting. So, I create block-level environments, then reuse them at the top level. Awesome, but wait a minute. I still need the top-level verification (Input-to-Output) like in the first example. However, all 3 of my block predictors are be
