SNUG 2010: Interoperable Testbenches Using VMM TLM


This paper received a technical committee honorable mention award at SNUG 2010.

SOC’s are getting larger all the time and so is the challenge to verify these designs in a short period of time. This paper presents a transaction level-based methodology in the VMM to standardize development of various pieces of a verification environment and the communication between them. This methodology promotes reuse and helps integrate modules from various sources to interact together seamlessly.
