weight distribution on sequence library

Recommended Posts

Could anyone suggest how to put weight distribution on sequence selection inside the sequence library?

I see that UVM_SEQ_LIB_RAND gives control to randomly select one of the sequences in sequence library. However, I'd like finer control as in something like 80% on sequenceA, 10% on sequenceB, 10% on sequenceC.

I see UVM_SEQ_LIB_USER in user guide and ref manual but I don't see any examples on using it.

Thanks Erling.

Could you also tell me where I can find reference/documentation to parameter such as your "valid_rand_selection constraint"?

I'm new to UVM and while reading through this forum, I found lots of reference to features/parameters (e.g. is_randomized, valid_rand_selection) that I couldn't find in the 2 docs I use: uvm_users_guild_1.1.pdf and UVM_1.1_Class_Reference_Final_06062011.pdf.

I don't know if there is any documentation about this, but if you go to the source you'll find that the uvm_sequence_library class is equipped with this constraint (among others):

constraint valid_rand_selection {

select_rand inside {[0:sequences.size()-1]};


Constraints have dynamic binding and randomize() is a method, and this enables override of constraints with the same names in an extended class. It may be a good idea to print() the library when the test is done, to check that the sequence distribution is as you want it to be.
