Objection Mechanism Synchronization Between SystemVerilog and e Active Verification Components
Published. September 2, 2014
Suppose you have two verification components, each driving its own portion of the DUT (for example, two protocols driving a DUT, one implemented in e and the other in System Verilog). In this case, you would have two separate sequence-driven, end-of-test mechanisms - one for each framework. An issue arises when one of the frameworks drops its last TEST_DONE objection. In this case, that framework will begin simulation finalization phase, while the other is still running. This will cause the simulation...
