Course Highlights

You will learn how to

  • Model using a behavioral approach with VHDL’s advanced language constructs.
  • Write sophisticated modern testbenches consisting of random stimulus, vector compression techniques for regressions, and basic PSL capabilities for temporal monitoring.
  • Use QuestaSim’s advanced verification capabilities such as coverage, waveform comparison, and code profiling to increase your performance and test confidence.

Hands-on labs

  • Write a behavioral fifo model using linked lists
  • Write a reusable, parameterizable, multi-phase clock generation block
  • Generate random stimulus for verification using algorithmic and LSFR methods
  • Write temporal monitors for verification of bus protocols
  • Write basic PSL sequences for verification
  • Use advanced regression methods such as MISR’s and QuestaSim’s waveform comparison
  • Using QuestaSim’s coverage and profiling tools
