Accelerating FPGA VHDL Verification

Description

A significant part of the time for any FPGA project is taken up by verification. Reducing this time will accelerate the entire project development. The key to this is a well-structured testbench. This course focuses on FPGA verification and teaches how to build a testbench in a structured way. Theory alternates with practical examples and hands-on tutorials. It also covers important topics such as coverage, BFMs, debugging and randomization. This is also a great opportunity to get acquainted with the "Universal VHDL Verification Methodology" (UVVM), which is freely accessible as open source, allowing a well structured testbench to be easily and quickly created.

Course objectives

After the course participants will know how to structure an FPGA verification platform, implement testbenches, and write test sequencers so software and hardware developers can understand them. They will also learn to apply the complete VHDL-based UVVM verification platform in their organization.

THE TRAINER

Espen Tallaksen

is the CTO and founder of Bitvis, an independent design centre for embedded software and FPGA. He graduated from the University of Glasgow (Scotland) in 1987 and has 30 years’ experience with FPGA and ASIC development from Philips Semiconductors in Switzerland and various companies in Norway, including his earlier founded company Digitas.

During twenty years Espen has had a special interest for methodology cultivation and pragmatic efficiency and quality improvement. One result of this interest is the UVVM verification platform, that is currently being used by companies worldwide.

Espen has given many presentations and keynotes on various technical aspects of FPGA development including ABB Embedded Systems Forum, FPGAworld and at FPGA Kongress in Germany.
