Oct 01, 2020 Static Verification for RISC-V Cores and SoCs (US)

Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM (PT)

 

Abstract:

The entire processor industry is currently going through a paradigm shift - new generations of domain-specific proprietary processor cores based on the open-source RISC-V ISA are now being developed by various industry-leading semiconductor companies. Additionally, open-source RISC-V processor cores such as SweRV, Ibex and Pulp are now available, and they are actively being developed in various open-source Github communities. 

 

Static verification or linting is a standard part of the tool flow for any processor-based designs to help engineers develop highly robust code in both IP and SoC levels. Static linting based on industry-best practice coding standards are critical in ensuring best-practice coding styles, efficient synthesis and timing closure, avoid simulation-to-synthesis mismatches, and proper usage of SystemVerilog constructs and data types. In this presentation, we will demonstrate how to statically verify RISC-V IP designs with the new ALINT-PRO RISC-V ruleset.

 

Agenda:

  • Current RISC-V design verification flow : the Overview
  • Advanced Linting with ALINT-PRO RISC-V Rules Plugin
    • ALINT-PRO Lintong for IP designs
    •  RISC-V Plugin overview
  • Running Advanced Linting on RISC-V designs:
    • Live demo of RISC-V cores linting
    • Issues & violations Analysis
  • Summary
  • QnA
