randomize and $dist_normal?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to make the randomization of variables via randomize() use one of the different RNGs listed in 20.15 of the IEEE Std 1800 (such as $dist_normal or others)?  Or does the use of one of the alternative RNGs require manually doing randomization via direct calls to those utility functions ($dist_normal, etc) in the post_ or pre_randomize() functions?

Try putting the dist_normal in a function used by a constraint.


class A;
   int seed = $urandom;
   int tmp;
   rand int ii;
   rand int mean;
   constraint c{ii == normal(mean);}
   function int normal(int mean);
      return $dist_normal(seed, mean,10);
   constraint mn {mean inside {[200:400]};}
endclass : A
   A a = new;
   initial repeat(10) begin
      int tmp;
      tmp = a.seed;
      $display("%p %d",a, $dist_normal(tmp,a.mean, 10));
endmodule : top
