This book provides a hands-on, application-oriented guide to the language and methodology of both SystemVerilog Assertions and SystemVerilog Functional Coverage. Readers will benefit from the step-by-step approach to functional hardware verification using SystemVerilog Assertions and Functional Coverage, which will enable them to uncover hidden and hard to find bugs, point directly to the source of the bug, provide for a clean and easy way to model complex timing checks and objectively answer the question ‘have we functionally verified everything’. Written by a professional end-user of ASIC/SoC/CPU and FPGA design and Verification, this book explains each concept with easy to understand examples, simulation logs and applications derived from real projects. Readers will be empowered to tackle the modeling of complex checkers for functional verification, thereby drastically reducing their time to design and debug. This updated second edition addresses the latest functional set released in IEEE-1800 (2012) LRM, including numerous additional operators and features. Additionally, many of the Concurrent Assertions/Operators explanations are enhanced, with the addition of more examples and figures. · Covers in its entirety the latest IEEE-1800 2012 LRM syntax and semantics; · Covers both SystemVerilog Assertions and SystemVerilog Functional Coverage language and methodologies; · Provides practical examples of the what, how and why of Assertion Based Verification and Functional Coverage methodologies; · Explains each concept in a step-by-step fashion and applies it to a practical real life example; · Includes 6 practical LABs that enable readers to put in practice the concepts explained in the book.

Everything professional engineers and students need to get started with SystemVerilog and digital hardware design - all in one book • •Teaches all the fundamentals of digital design with the industry's most advanced language, SystemVerilog. •150 complete, downloadable code examples, with highlighted syntax . •Up-to-the-minute coverage of Design for Test and new verification methodologies. •Based on the best-seller, Digital System Design with VHDL, now 100% revamped for SystemVerilog. To design state-of-the-art digital hardware, engineers begin by specifying functionality in a high-level Hardware Description Language (HDL). Today, the most powerful and exciting HDL is SystemVerilog, which recently became an IEEE standard. This is the first comprehensive introduction to both SystemVerilog and the contemporary digital hardware design techniques that are used with it. Building on the proven approach of his international bestseller, Digital System Design with VHDL, 013039985X, PH UK, Mark Zwolinski covers everything practicing engineers and students need to know to automate the entire design process with SystemVerilog: from modeling through functional simulation, synthesis, timing, and fault simulation. Rather than laboriously covering every aspect of SystemVerilog syntax, Zwolinski teaches through roughly 150 practical examples that provide enough detail to enable rapid hardware design and verification. For each example, relevant syntax is highlighted in color for easier comprehension. All examples may be downloadable from a companion web site. Along the way, Zwolinksi provides invaluable coverage of crucial new topics in digital design, notably Design for Test and modern verification methodologies. The result is a book that will give both students and working professionals all the practical knowledge they need to design reliable hardware with SystemVerilog - and do so quickly and efficiently.

The Verilog Programming Language Interface, commonly called the Verilog PU, is one of the more powerful features of Verilog. The PU provides a means for both hardware designers and software engineers to interface their own programs to commercial Verilog simulators. Through this interface, a Verilog simulator can be customized to perform virtually any engineering task desired. Just a few of the common uses of the PU include interfacing Veri log simulations to C language models, adding custom graphical tools to a simulator, reading and writing proprietary file formats from within a simulation, performing test coverage analysis during simulation, and so forth. The applications possible with the Verilog PLI are endless. Intended audience: this book is written for digital design engineers with a background in the Verilog Hardware Description Language and a fundamental knowledge of the C programming language. It is expected that the reader: Has a basic knowledge of hardware engineering, specifically digital design of ASIC and FPGA technologies. Is familiar with the Verilog Hardware Description Language (HDL), and can write models of hardware circuits in Verilog, can write simulation test fixtures in Verilog, and can run at least one Verilog logic simulator. Knows basic C-language programming, including the use of functions, pointers, structures and file I/O. Explanations of the concepts and terminology of digital

For those with a basic understanding of digital design, this book teaches the essential skills to design digital integrated circuits using Verilog and the relevant extensions of SystemVerilog. In addition to covering the syntax of Verilog and SystemVerilog, the author provides an appreciation of design challenges and solutions for producing working circuits. The book covers not only the syntax and limitations of HDL coding, but deals extensively with design problems such as partitioning and synchronization, helping you to produce designs that are not only logically correct, but will actually work when turned into physical circuits. Throughout the book, many small examples are used to validate concepts and demonstrate how to apply design skills. This book takes readers who have already learned the fundamentals of digital design to the point where they can produce working circuits using modern design methodologies. It clearly explains what is useful for circuit design and what parts of the languages are only software, providing a non-theoretical, practical guide to robust, reliable and optimized hardware design and development. Produce working hardware: Covers not only syntax, but also provides design know-how, addressing problems such as synchronization and partitioning to produce working solutions Usable examples: Numerous small examples throughout the book demonstrate concepts in an easy-to-grasp manner Essential knowledge: Covers the vital design topics of synchronization, essential for producing working silicon; asynchronous interfacing techniques; and design techniques for circuit optimization, including partitioning
