KapilJain Posted September 22, 2012 Report Share Posted September 22, 2012 I had a fundamental question regarding how the flow for Scoreboarding(SB) really should be. Let say we have SB at unit level for all the sub-module in the design, how should we go about stitiching these at top: Option A : Tap the internal signals(each sub-module boundary signals) provide it to all the module level SB, while doing the top level run. Option B : Create a new Top level SB which sees only Top level signals. You can take help of the module level SB wherever possible but, you are not allowed to tap those internal signals Option A give us advantage of Reuse, finding/localizing issues at boundary level. But we can use this for Gate Level sims Option B gives us advantage of using the SB for gate level sims... but involves a lot of rework. One of the accellera Power Points suggests Option B and further suggests to disable the SB during Gate Level sims. Que: If the SB is disabled at Gate Level Sim, what do we acheive with them.
