Firmware Driven OVM Testbench
The Open Verification Methodology (OVM) promotes a well-defined SystemVerilog transaction-level interface, inviting integration of a host of verification technologies. Firmware has proven effective for functional verification of embedded hardware, so it follows that OVM integration of a firmware execution environment will advance the verification of embedded systems. To this end, Mentor Graphics has added OVM-compliant interfaces to the Seamless HW/SW co-simulation tool.
This paper covers the firmware execution modes, supported processors, and interface points of the Seamless/OVM integration.
