VLSI Industry is divided into two popular branches viz. Design of System and Verification of the System. Verilog, VHDL remain the popular choices for most Design Engineers working in this domain. Although, preliminary functional verification can be carried out with Hardware Description Language. Hardware Description language possesses limited capabilities to perform code coverage analysis, Corner cases testing, etc and in fact sometimes it becomes impossible to perform this check with HDL's. 

Hence Specialized Verification languages such as SystemVerilog start to become the primary choice for the verification of the design.

The SystemVerilog Object-oriented nature allows features such as Inheritance, Polymorphism, etc. adds capabilities of finding critical bugs inside design that HDL simply cannot find. 

Verification is certainly more tricky and interesting as compared to designing a digital system and hence it consists of a large number of OOP's Constructs as opposed to Verilog. SystemVerilog is one of the most popular choices among Verification Engineer for Digital System Verification. This Journey will take you to the most common techniques used to write SystemVerilog Testbench and perform Verification of the Chips. The course is structured so that anyone who wishes to learn about System Verilog will able to understand everything. Finally, Practice is the key to become an expert.

AMBA AXI Infrastructure Based on Xilinx FPGA IPs and Verilog

Why AXI? 

=========

The answer is simple - there is NO any Soc or complex system, which does not contain AXI. If your work somehow is connected with processor, controller or any other big system than there will be multiple AXI buses in the system. AXI bus is a ARM standard bus, which is supported by all hardware companies e.g. Xilinx, Intel, AMD and so on. And by the advance of AI the AXI is going to be more and more popular.

In this course AXI protocol and its sub-parts will be explained.

Also as a free side knowledge you will study Vivado with its IPs, simulation methods and many more.

Target Students

==============

The course is mainly targeted for FPGA designers, who are using AXI based modules in the design. Also the course will be useful for engineers who is starting to use AXI protocol.

The course is extremely helpful for graduate students who is looking for a new job as a FPGA or Soc Developer, in my previous 3 companies AXI questions were the most often to ask the fresh graduates for hire.

Course Content

==============

In the course mainly the basics of AXI protocol family is explained, which allows students easily understand and use AXI based IPs. This is more practical view of AXI usage allowing for jump start to use AXI based modules.  The course does not go to FPGA board level,as the target is AXI protocol and Xilinx provided AXI Infrastucture understanding.The course concentrated on simulation level, not FPGA board running is done.

The AXI protocol is complex enough and sometimes it takes much time to get used to it. Usually the AXI protocol is easy to understand when you are familiar with much easy version of it, which are AXI-Stream and AXI-Lite. The course is based on bottom-up-style. At first I explain AXI-stream protocol, than explain AXI-Lite protocol in detail. We do both of these protocol designs using Verilog.

Than having all that baggage of knowledge we move to AXI protocol.

 In the course I tried to review the ARM speck for AXI, hoping that this will help students easily jump in speck reading, after finishing the course.

Special Thanks:

=============

I want to express special thanks to Eduard Vardanyan, from ARM, for his great support in making this course. His profound experience and deep knowledge helped me to explain complex AXI parts simply. Without his help I could not do this.

Caution:

=======

Also I apologize for my English, I tried my best to speak clearly and grammatically correct, however sometimes there are some mistakes. I really hope that my non-native English will not bother students to understand the material.

Course Materials:

===============

All course codes can be downloaded from Github.

Note: If you have software background, I would suggest little bit become familiar with Verilog. There are several lectures which require Verilog and hardware basics.

Basic verification methodology course intended for engineers familiar with SystemVerilog language. This course uses VMM base class library as vehicle, but the concepts are equally applicable in all other libraries such as OVM, UVM. AVM, eRM etc. We start from the basics, introduce the top-level architecture of testbench, then delve into each of the components. For those looking for UVM equivalents, below correlation may help:

1. Section 1-3: Common across BCLs (Base Class Libraries)

2. Section 4: Transaction Modeling - UVM transactions/sequence items

3. Section 5: TLM Ports/Channels - UVM SEQ Item port/analysis ports

4. Section 6: Constrained Random Generation - UVM Sequences, SEQ macros

5. Section 7: Driver BFM - UVM Driver, Monitor BFM

6. Section 8: Complete Env - UVM ENV

7. Section 9: Controlling the test flow - UVM Phasing

Intention of each short section is to let the learners digest each piece in short and understand the rationale behind methodology guidelines. Goal is NOT to teach the syntax, rather explore why such guidelines are important, what are the common mistakes engineers do without these methodologies etc. If you need a full-fledged course on UVM with syntax, labs etc. feel free to contact us via training@cvcblr.com for a paid course.

This material is from an earlier recording at a training session and has some background hiss/noise, bear with us while we attempt to fix the same.

Writing Verilog test benches is always fun after completing RTL Design. You can assure clients that the design will be bug-free in tested scenarios. As System complexity is growing day by day, System Verilog becomes a choice for verification due to its powerful capabilities and reusability helping verification engineers quickly locate hidden bugs. The System Verilog lags structured approach whereas UVM works very hard on forming a general skeleton. The addition of the configuration database Shifts the way we used to work with the Verification Language in the past. Within a few years, verification engineers recognize the capabilities of UVM and adopted UVM as a defacto standard for the RTL Design verification. The UVM will have a long run in the Verification domain hence learning of UVM will help VLSI aspirants to pursue a career in this domain.

The course will discuss the fundamentals of the Universal Verification Methodology. This is a Lab-based course designed such that anyone without prior OOPS or system Verilog experience can immediately start writing UVM components such as Transaction, Generator, Sequencer, Driver, monitor, Scoreboard, Agent, Environment, Test. Numerous coding exercises, projects, and simple examples are used throughout the course to build strong foundations of the UVM.

Nowadays, Incorporating the Assertions in the Verification of the design is common to verify RTL behavior against the design specification. Independent of the Hardware Verification Language( HVL ) viz. Verilog, SystemVerilog, UVM used for performing verification of the RTL, the addition of the assertions inside the Verification code helps to quickly trace bugs. The primary advantage of using SV assertion over Verilog-based behavior check is a simplistic implementation of the complex sequence that can consume a good amount of time and effort in Verilog-based codes. SystemVerilog assertion has a limited set of operators so learning them is not difficult but choosing a specific operator to meet design specifications comes with years of experience. In this course,  We will go through series of examples to build a foundation on choosing a correct assertion strategy to verify the RTL Behavior. The assertion comes in three flavors viz. Immediate Assertion, Deferred Immediate assertion, Final deferred immediate assertion, and Concurrent Assertion. An assertion is a code responsible for verifying the behavior of the design. Full Verification of the design essentially includes verification in  Temporal as well as non-temporal domains. SV Immediate and Deferred assertions allow us to verify the functionality of the design in the Non-Temporal region and Concurrent assertion allows us to verify the design in the Temporal region.

What is SystemVerilog Assertion (SVA)?

SVA is an integral part of IEEE-1800 SystemVerilog language, focusing on the temporal aspects of specification, modeling and verification. SVA allows sophisticated, multi-cycle assertions and functional checks to be embedded in HDL code. SVA allows simple HDL boolean expressions to be built into complex definitions of design behavior, which can be used for assertions, functional coverage, debug and formal verification.

This course gives you an in-depth introduction to the language. It starts with basic concepts but quickly moves on to advanced topics. Specifically we delve deep into SVA Sequences and show how complex temporal expressions can be built. We describe how to leverage on first_match operator to avoid unexpected threads leading to false alarms.

On the properties front we show how local variables help you model design characteristics.

We end this course with a detailed look at Sampling Semantics in SVA - this is unique in the industry as many courses do not cover this key concept.

Below is more detailed agenda.

  • Introduction to Assertions & ABV

  • Introduction to SystemVerilog

  • Structure of an assertion

  • Sequences and Properties in SVA

  • Sequence repetition operators

  • Composition operators for SVA Sequences

  • Detecting first_match in ranged-temporal sequences
