UVM RAL for configuration

Recommended Posts


I was expecting RAL to be used for register verification like write/read/bitbash . Did anyone on this forum see its usage as to using it in configuration phase to configure the test bench and have usual functionality of the IP on run phase . 

What do you mean by using RAL to configure the tb In a SoC TB?

It can and should be used both ways. You can verify/validate register behavior (e.g., write via the front door and verify via the backdoor) and use it to configure IP via the backdoor. The reason for using it to configure components is that backdoor accesses are faster than frontdoor accesses, and performance is important when you consider the millions of things to be tested.
