Download ASIC and FPGA Verification : A Guide to Component Modeling by Richard Munden PDF

By Richard Munden

Richard Munden demonstrates how you can create and use simulation types for verifying ASIC and FPGA designs and board-level designs that use off-the-shelf electronic elements. in line with the VHDL/VITAL ordinary, those types contain timing constraints and propagation delays which are required for exact verification of modern-day electronic designs. ASIC and FPGA Verification: A advisor to part Modeling expertly illustrates how ASICs and FPGAs should be established within the higher context of a board or a process. it's a helpful source for any dressmaker who simulates multi-chip electronic designs. *Provides various versions and a sincerely outlined method for acting board-level simulation.*Covers the main points of modeling for verification of either common sense and timing. *First e-book to gather and educate strategies for utilizing VHDL to version "off-the-shelf" or "IP" electronic parts to be used in FPGA and board-level layout verification.

Sample text

These include VITAL Timing, VITAL Primitives, and VITAL Memory. Four packages from FMF are also reviewed. Chapter 4 provides a basic tutorial on the Standard Delay Format as it applies to component modeling. The overall file format is described. The capabilities of SDF and its syntax are explored. Chapter 5 describes the organization and requirements of VITAL models. The different requirements for level0 and level1 models are provided. The mapping of SDF to VITAL generics is explained. The sections of a VITAL model are described along with the order in which they must appear.

Indentations are set to four spaces. We always use spaces instead of tabs. Tabs may be set to anything by the reader or printer. By using spaces, we can control the formatting and be sure the model will print legibly. Except for WireDelay blocks, always try to use named associations. For example, on lines 36 and 37 we write YNeg_zd:= VitalNAND2(a=> A_ipd, b => B_ipd, Resultant => STD_wired_and_rmap); -- 36 -- 37 in which we specify that A_ipd is associated with a, and so on. Although this makes the model easier to understand, there is another important reason.

Chapter 7 discloses the truth behind VITAL truth tables and state tables and their employment in component modeling. VITAL memory tables are not forgotten. This chapter reveals the differences between truth tables and state tables, how to create them, and when each is appropriate. It also touches on memory tables. In Chapter 8, timing constraints are defined and the essentials of constraint modeling are described. Each type of timing constraint is explained, along with its usage.
