SystemVerilog introduced numerous ideas new to Verilog programmers. Some of them enhanced hardware descriptions (e.g. always_ff block), some were meant to enhance verification (e.g. classes) and some were cross-over enhancements that can be used in many different contexts. SystemVerilog interface construct belongs to the cross-over group: it offers useful features for both hardware designers and verification engineers. The unfortunate side effect of this variety of applications is the confusion among SV users: all of them heard about interfaces, many used them to some extent, but virtually nobody fully mastered them.

In Sept. 2013, Aldec said goodbye to friend and colleague, Jerry Kaczynski. Jerry’s breadth of knowledge ran deep. He possessed over 20 years of experience in language and tool training, technical writing, and research engineering. Jerry held Bachelor and Master Degrees in Electronics from Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. He served his role as Aldec's Research Engineer with deep conviction, sharing his knowledge and research in the form of papers, articles, and trainings. He was an IEEE and Accellera committee member, and a staunch advocate for engineers through his involvement in the development of industry standards for VHDL, Verilog, PSL, SystemC & SystemVerilog.
