Tutorial: RISC-V compliance and verification techniques for processor cores including optional custom extensions

Rapid Evolution For Verification Plans

While many companies do have verification plans, demands on those plans are changing faster than most companies can evolve.

semiengineering.com

Verification plans are rapidly evolving from mechanisms to track verification progress into multi-faceted coordination vehicles for several teams with disparate goals, using complex resource management spread across multiple abstractions and tools.

New system demands from industries such as automotive are forcing tighter integration of those plans with requirements management and product lifecycle development. As a result, today’s verification plan must encapsulate the entire development methodology…

Open ISAs Gaining Traction

Emphasis on flexibility, time to market and heterogeneity requires more processing options.

semiengineering.com

Open instruction set architectures are starting to gain a foothold, often in combination with other processors, as chipmakers begin to add more specialized compute elements and more flexibility into their designs.

There are a number of these open ISAs available today, including Power, MIPS, and RISC-V, and there are a number of permutations and tools available for sale based on those architectures. What has opened the door to making these more acceptable in designs is that one or more of these architectures may be included in a chip alongside processors from Arm, Synopsys, Cadence, Achronix, Flex Logix, or even Intel.

There are a number of reasons why open ISAs make sense, and other reasons why they don’t make sense everywhere....
