Generation of UVM compliant Test Benches for Automotive Systems using IP-XACT with UVM-SystemC and SystemC AMS
This paper presents a methodology and flow to automate the test bench creation for automotive heterogeneous HW/SW systems, using SystemC, SystemC-AMS and IP-XACT.
- Introduces UVM foundation elements such as test, environment, UVC (Universal Verification Component), transactions and associated configuration objects
- Explains how these objects are packaged by means of IP-XACT vendor extensions
- Demonstrates how IP-XACT enables the automatic generation of an entire mixed signal verification environment
