Hardware Verification with System VERILOG: An Object-Oriented Framework


Hardware Verification with System VERILOG: An Object-Oriented Framework

Mike MintzRobert Ekendahl

Verification is increasingly complex, and SystemVerilog is one of the languages that the verification community is turning to. However, no language by itself can guarantee success without proper techniques. Object-oriented programming (OOP), with its focus on managing complexity, is ideally suited to this task.


With this handbook—the first to focus on applying OOP to SystemVerilog—we’ll show how to manage complexity by using layers of abstraction and base classes. By adapting these techniques, you will write more “reasonable” code, and build efficient and reusable verification components.


Both a learning tool and a reference, this handbook contains hundreds of real-world code snippets and three professional…


Learn about OOP techniques such as these:


    • Creating classes—code interfaces, factory functions, reuse



    • Connecting classes—pointers, inheritance, channels



    • Using “correct by construction”—strong typing, base classes



    • Packaging it up—singletons, static methods, packages


This handbook guides the user in applying OOP techniques for verification. Mike and Robert have captured their years of experience in a clear and easy-to-read handbook. The examples are complete, and the code is available for you to get started right away. Highly recommended.

This handbook contains a lot of useful advice for any verification engineer wanting to create a class-based testbench, regardless of the framework/methodology used. I recommend Hardware Verification with SystemVerilog to anyone who wants a greater understanding of how best to use OOP with SystemVerilog.

This is a fantastic book that not only shows how to use SystemVerilog and Object-Oriented Programming for verification, but also provides practical examples that are open source!

I have been using SystemVerilog for two years in my research, and this is by far the best book I have found about how to achieve professional grade verification. I will apply these techniques on my future projects.
