IP-XACT Tutorials – Verification and Automation Improvements
As part of DVCON 2012, Duolog participated in an IP-XACT tutorial session hosted by Accellera. The tutorial session focused on providing an opportunity to learn more about IP-XACT and how it can be used to enhance your SOC/IP design and verification flow.
The tutorial was presented by members of the IP-XACT technical committee and features Dave Murray, CTO of Duolog.
- Improving Verification Efficiency using IP-XACT
- User Presentation: Verification and Automation Improvements using IP-XACT
- IP-XACT and UVM
- IP-XACT Extensions
Duolog is an active member of the technical committee working on developing the next generation of the standard. Duolog is committed to promoting the adoption of the standard in order to enhance IP/SOC integration, interoperatbility and automation.
The IP-XACT 1685 standard is available for free download from the IEEE.
IEEE 1685, “Standard for IP-XACT, Standard Structure for Packaging, Integrating and Re-Using IP Within Tool-Flows,” describes an XML Schema for meta-data documenting Intellectual Property (IP) used in the development, implementation and verification of electronic systems and an Application Programming Interface (API) to provide tool access to the meta-data. This schema provides a standard method to document IP that is compatible with automated integration techniques. The API provides a standard method for linking tools into a System Development framework, enabling a more flexible, optimized development environment. Tools compliant with this standard will be able to interpret, configure, integrate and manipulate IP blocks that comply with the proposed IP meta-data description. The standard will be independent of any specific design process. It does not cover the behavioural characteristics of the IP.
