UVM: Registers/Specification

Hardware functional blocks connected to host processors are managed via memory mapped registers. This means that each bit in the software address map corresponds to a hardware flip-flop. In order to control and interact with the hardware, software has to read and write the registers and so the register description is organized using an abstraction which is referred to as the hardware-software interface, or as the register description.
