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

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.

SystemVerilog is a rich set of extensions to the IEEE 1364-2001 Verilog Hardware Description Language (Verilog HDL). These extensions address two major aspects of HDL based design. First, modeling very large designs with concise, accurate, and intuitive code. Second, writing high-level test programs to efficiently and effectively verify these large designs. This book, SystemVerilog for Design, addresses the first aspect of the SystemVerilog extensions to Verilog. Important modeling features are presented, such as two-state data types, enumerated types, user-defined types, structures, unions, and interfaces. Emphasis is placed on the proper usage of these enhancements for simulation and synthesis. A companion to this book, SystemVerilog for Verification, covers the second aspect of SystemVerilog.

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.

SystemVerilog provides abundant features that could overwhelm a SystemVerilog beginner. Fortunately, for a decent RTL design, only a small subset of SystemVerilog is needed. The purpose of this book is to carefully choose the right subset of SystemVerilog so that the digital designer can comfortably start their SystemVerilog design project. In this book, FPGA application is chosen not only for its easy and quick practice but also for its wider adoption. SystemVerilog examples will be deployed broadly throughout this book for reference. For those who want to learn HDL design, this book will help them ramp up their HDL design skill quickly while avoiding the pitfalls. For those who have experience in Verilog but want to advance their knowledge to SystemVerilog, this book can be a good reference. For the VHDL designers who want to explore the features in SystemVerilog, this book can serve as a bridge since it is written in a way that the common and different concepts between VHDL and SystemVerilog are emphasized.The following are the specialties of this book:1. It provides a carefully chosen subset of SystemVerilog language for FPGA design.2. It provides a great number of examples for easier learning and practice3. It shows using SystemVerilog as an efficient way for a productive verification4. It emphasizes on the FPGA application but the presented RTL design is also applicable to ASIC.This book is organized as follows: Chapter 1 first briefly describes the HDL digital design methodology. Then it describes SystemVerilog language and its syntax. The basic topics include lexical convention, data type, operators, and expressions. It also explains various programming statements such as assignment statements, if-else statements, case statements and loop statements.Chapter 2 shows how to use SystemVerilog to describe the basic digital gates and digital hardware circuits as well as to model their behavior. It explains SytemVerilog modelling constructs. The constructs are modules, procedures, interfaces, functions and packages. This chapter also covers advanced topics such as compiler directives, digital arithmetic operation and design optimization.Chapter 3 introduces the synchronous sequential digital design. It gives some example designs such as flip-flop registers, shift registers, counters and adders. The design of finite-state machine (FSM) is discussed in depth for control circuit in digital systems. The algorithmic state machine (ASM) with data path is described for data-processing digital system. It also addresses other advanced topics of timing analysis, design performance and clock-domain crossing.Chapter 4 focuses on the functional simulation of digital design. It describes the general construction of test bench using SystemVerilog. It introduces the initial procedure for pre-simulation initialization, the final procedure for post-simulation processing and the task procedure for repetitive operations. It explains how to control the simulation proceeding with procedure timing control. It presents some useful system functions and tasks for math functions, file I/O and etc.. Chapter 5 addresses the FPGA design methodology. The topics covers design flow, design environment, intellectual property (IP) core usage, simulation and constraints. The FPGA design for system-on-chip (SOC) is emphasized as this type of FPGA becomes popular. The FPGA configuration options are discussed. Last but not least, it introduces helpful FPGA design practices for a successful design.

The Verilog Hardware Description Language was first introduced in 1984. Over the 20 year history of Verilog, every Verilog engineer has developed his own personal “bag of tricks” for coding with Verilog. These tricks enable modeling or verifying designs more easily and more accurately. Developing this bag of tricks is often based on years of trial and error. Through experience, engineers learn that one specific coding style works best in some circumstances, while in another situation, a different coding style is best. As with any high-level language, Verilog often provides engineers several ways to accomplish a specific task. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if an engineer first learning Verilog could start with another engineer’s bag of tricks, without having to go through years of trial and error to decide which style is best for which circumstance? That is where this book becomes an invaluable resource. The book presents dozens of Verilog tricks of the trade on how to best use the Verilog HDL for modeling designs at various level of abstraction, and for writing test benches to verify designs. The book not only shows the correct ways of using Verilog for different situations, it also presents alternate styles, and discusses the pros and cons of these styles.
