Highlights of DVCon EU 2018

This post presents some of the highlights of the technical program AMIQ consultants enjoyed attending at DVCon Europe 2018 (24-25 October, Munich).   Hot Topics It is quite hard choosing a “hottest” topic, but we did notice that PSS- and SystemC-related papers/tutorials engaged a lot of engineers in discussions.   SystemC, Virtual Platforms, System Modeling […]

C++ Implementation of Functional Coverage for SystemC

We release Functional Coverage for SystemC (FC4SC) library which provides mechanisms for functional coverage definition, collection and reporting. FC4SC is a header-only, C++2011-based library, that can be integrated with C++ applications, including SystemC models. It’s primary use case is to measure the level of exercise of SystemC models, basically to measure how many of model’s […]

How to Align SystemVerilog-to-SystemC TLM Transactions Definitions

This post presents a method to align definitions of the objects defined in SystemVerilog and SystemC. An object from SystemVerilog is aligned with an object in SystemC if they both have the same fields with same data types. Verification projects that use both SystemVerilog and SystemC make use of TLM transactions to exchange data between […]

How to Export Functional Coverage from SystemC to SystemVerilog

This post presents a way to collect functional coverage from SystemC models using SystemVerilog covergroups and UVM-ML/UVM-Connect. Functional coverage is not standardized yet in SystemC, but there is a workaround for the case of mixed-language(SystemC/SystemVerilog) verification environments. This workaround makes use of covergroups from SystemVerilog and TLM transactions from SystemC and SystemVerilog. When a sampling […]
