Verification is increasingly complex, and SystemVerilog is one of the languages that the verification community is turning to. However, no language by itself can guarantee success without proper techniques. Object-oriented programming (OOP), with its focus on managing complexity, is ideally suited to this task. With this handbook—the first to focus on applying OOP to SystemVerilog—we’ll show how to manage complexity by using layers of abstraction and base classes. By adapting these techniques, you will write more "reasonable" code, and build efficient and reusable verification components. Both a learning tool and a reference, this handbook contains hundreds of real-world code snippets and three professional verification-system examples. You can copy and paste from these examples, which are all based on an open-source, vendor-neutral framework (with code freely available at www.trusster.com). Learn about OOP techniques such as these: Creating classes—code interfaces, factory functions, reuse Connecting classes—pointers, inheritance, channels Using "correct by construction"—strong typing, base classes Packaging it up—singletons, static methods, packages

Verification is too often approached in an ad hoc fashion. Visually inspecting simulation results is no longer feasible and the directed test-case methodology is reaching its limit. Moore's Law demands a productivity revolution in functional verification methodology. Writing Testbenches Using SystemVerilog offers a clear blueprint of a verification process that aims for first-time success using the SystemVerilog language. From simulators to source management tools, from specification to functional coverage, from I's and O's to high-level abstractions, from interfaces to bus-functional models, from transactions to self-checking testbenches, from directed testcases to constrained random generators, from behavioral models to regression suites, this book covers it all. Writing Testbenches Using SystemVerilog presents many of the functional verification features that were added to the Verilog language as part of SystemVerilog. Interfaces, virtual modports, classes, program blocks, clocking blocks and others SystemVerilog features are introduced within a coherent verification methodology and usage model. Writing Testbenches Using SystemVerilog introduces the reader to all elements of a modern, scalable verification methodology. It is an introduction and prelude to the verification methodology detailed in the Verification Methodology Manual for SystemVerilog. It is a SystemVerilog version of the author's bestselling book Writing Testbenches: Functional Verification of HDL Models.

The Definitive, Up-to-Date Guide to Digital Design with SystemVerilog: Concepts, Techniques, and Code To design state-of-the-art digital hardware, engineers first specify functionality in a high-level Hardware Description Language (HDL)—and today’s most powerful, useful HDL is SystemVerilog, now an IEEE standard. Digital System Design with SystemVerilog is the first comprehensive introduction to both SystemVerilog and the contemporary digital hardware design techniques used with it. Building on the proven approach of his bestselling Digital System Design with VHDL, Mark Zwolinski covers everything engineers need to know to automate the entire design process with SystemVerilog—from modeling through functional simulation, synthesis, timing simulation, and verification. Zwolinski teaches through about a hundred and fifty practical examples, each with carefully detailed syntax and enough in-depth information to enable rapid hardware design and verification. All examples are available for download from the book's companion Web site, zwolinski.org. Coverage includes Using electronic design automation tools with programmable logic and ASIC technologies Essential principles of Boolean algebra and combinational logic design, with discussions of timing and hazards Core modeling techniques: combinational building blocks, buffers, decoders, encoders, multiplexers, adders, and parity checkers Sequential building blocks: latches, flip- flops, registers, counters, memory, and sequential multipliers Designing finite state machines: from ASM chart to D flip-flops, next state, and output logic Modeling interfaces and packages with SystemVerilog Designing testbenches: architecture, constrained random test generation, and assertion-based verification Describing RTL and FPGA synthesis models Understanding and implementing Design-for-Test Exploring anomalous behavior in asynchronous sequential circuits Performing Verilog-AMS and mixed-signal modeling Whatever your experience with digital design, older versions of Verilog, or VHDL, this book will help you discover SystemVerilog’s full power and use it to the fullest.

The SystemVerilog for Verification book is a follow-on to the SystemVerilog for Design book, published earlier this year. The book will introduce the reader to the advanced testbench, verification and programming features of the Accellera SystemVerilog 3.1a standard, focusing on how these constructs can be used to set up effective verification methodologies. Readers should have a working knowledge of the Verilog HDL and preferably have read the "SystemVerilog for Design" book. Familiarity with other verification languages, Object-Oriented programming, constrained-random data generation and assertion languages would be helpful, although these topics will be covered in detail. Other topics to be covered include: Advanced programming features, including dynamic and associative arrays; Multiple processes, synchronization, communication and process control; Functional coverage. The book will contain appendices that discuss the new programming interfaces that are included in SystemVerilog 3.1a.

Functional verification is an art as much as a science. It requires not only creativity and cunning, but also a clear methodology to approach the problem. The Open Verification Methodology (OVM) is a leading-edge methodology for verifying designs at multiple levels of abstraction. It brings together ideas from electrical, systems, and software engineering to provide a complete methodology for verifying large scale System-on-Chip (SoC) designs. OVM defines an approach for developing testbench architectures so they are modular, configurable, and reusable. This book is designed to help both novice and experienced verification engineers master the OVM through extensive examples. It describes basic verification principles and explains the essentials of transaction-level modeling (TLM). It leads readers from a simple connection of a producer and a consumer through complete self-checking testbenches. It explains construction techniques for building configurable, reusable testbench components and how to use TLM to communicate between them. Elements such as agents and sequences are explained in detail.
