Portable Stimulus Basics
The new Portable Stimulus Standard being worked on in Accellera promises to provide the next leap in verification productivity needed to support the verification of our ever-growing system-on-chip (SoC) designs. In addition to increased complexity, SoC verification requires multiple platforms, including simulation, emulation and FPGA prototyping, each of which typically use different languages and formats for specifying the test, wasting precious time recreating the same test information throughout a project. Portable Stimulus attempts to address this problem by providing a single specification of test intent and coverage at a higher level of abstraction, allowing tools to generate target-specific implementations of the test for the desired platforms and freeing up the verification team to focus on what should be tested.
