HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aldec, Inc., a pioneer in mixed HDL language simulation and hardware-assisted verification for FPGA and ASIC designs, has introduced automatic UVM register generation to Riviera-PRO™, the company’s advanced verification platform. Accepting a CSV file or IP-XACT register description as an input, Riviera-PRO™ will, working at the Register Abstraction Layer (RAL) of UVM, output files as RTL register models, C headers and HTML.
In addition, libraries containing pre-compiled source code compliant with the latest versions of UVM (IEEE 1800.2-2107) and UVVM (2018.12.03), plus documentation and examples, have been added to Riviera-PRO™ to facilitate easier and better test bench creation.
“Both enhancements to Riviera-PRO are of great benefit to users,” comments Sunil Sahoo, Senior Corporate Applications Engineer. “Where the automatic generation of UVM register models is concerned, it provides major time-savings – certainly when the alternative is to hand-craft hundreds or thousands of register models. As for verification methodologies, we are dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date libraries.”
Other new features in Riviera-PRO™, release version 2019.04, include:
- SystemVerilog users can create nets of integral data types (typedef);
- The SystemVerilog compiler can work with sources for which the filename (including path name) is longer than 259 characters;
- VHDL packages can be translated to SystemVerilog;
- Support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 has been added; and
- Debugging (Toggle Coverage analysis for VHDL) has been enhanced to include logic level transitions to and from high resistance (Z).
Riviera-PRO™ addresses verification needs of engineers crafting tomorrow’s cutting-edge FPGA and SoC devices. The tool enables the ultimate testbench productivity, reusability, and automation by combining the high-performance simulation engine, advanced debugging capabilities at different levels of abstraction, and support for the latest Language and Verification Library Standards.
