SNUG 2009: Using the New Features in VMM 1.1 for Multi-Stream Scenarios


Honorable Mention - Technical Committee Award: SNUG San Jose 2009

Today's verification solutions often require complex concurrent streams of stimulus controlled from higher level transactors or scenarios. The VMM 1.1 library has been enhanced to add this capability, and support the management of access to the resources shared by different stimulus streams, i.e. multiple streams providing stimulus to the same transactor. This paper describes the challenges faced in developing these new features, and takes a detailed look at how they are used in a VMM "multi-stream scenario" environment.
