SVA Advanced Topics: SVAUnit and Assertions for Formal

SVA Advanced Topics: SVAUnit and Assertions for Formal

Presented at DVCon U.S. on February 29, 2016

This tutorial introduces advanced topics for assertion-based verification including SVAUnit and SVA for formal. It includes SVA planning, coding guidelines, SVAUnit (SVAUnit framework, self-checking tests, debug), and test patterns. In addition, it describes the basics of a formal specification using SystemVerilog language as a vehicle and covers the formal specification applications on assertions and coverage. View tutorial >

Cut Your Design Time in Half with Higher Abstraction

Cut Your Design Time in Half with Higher Abstraction

Presented at DVCon U.S. on February 29, 2016

This tutorial explains how to use SystemC to write synthesizable models at a higher level of abstraction than RTL. It provides real code examples comparing algorithms written at RTL and those written using the synthesizable subset, explaining the reasons behind the coding choices and the downstream implications for RTL and gates.
