Does cadence ncsim support uvm command line argument?

Recommended Posts



I'm running v.13.10.001 of ncsim.


It doesn't look like it supports uvm command line argument uvm_set_config_int like:


ncsim <flags> work.my_tb +UVM_TESTNAME=tb_m00308_default_test +uvm_set_config_int=*,<my_variable1>,<my_value>


Is that correct?

hi Uwe,


I've tried now with escaped * and full path, without success:

ncsim <flags> work.my_tb +UVM_TESTNAME=tb_m00308_default_test +uvm_set_config_int=uvm_test_top,<my_variable1>,<my_value>

ncsim <flags> work.my_tb +UVM_TESTNAME=tb_m00308_default_test +uvm_set_config_int=\*,<my_variable1>,<my_value>


A similar issue, when trying to trace the config db, I write

ncsim <flags> work.my_tb +UVM_TESTNAME=tb_m00308_default_test +uvm_set_config_int=*,<my_variable1>,<my_value> +UVM_CONFIG_DB_TRACE


I do not get any trace at all, even though I have other config overriding in my test.

However, choosing different tests from the command line is working.

this sounds strange to me. i just rechecked 13.10 and its working as expected. 


btw have you set +UVM_VERBOSITY to NONE ? if you do then the UVM_CONFIG_DB_TRACE messages are NOT emitted since they are printed with UVM_LOW verbosity.
