Validation of programmable architectures, along with processor cores, coprocessors, and reminiscence subsystems, is without doubt one of the significant bottlenecks in present System-on-Chip layout technique. A serious problem in validation of such structures is the inability of a golden reference version. hence, many current validation innovations hire a bottom-up method of layout verification, the place the performance of an current structure is, in essence, reverse-engineered from its implementation. conventional validation concepts hire diversified reference versions looking on the abstraction point and verification job, leading to strength inconsistencies among a number of reference models.This booklet offers a top-down validation technique that enhances the present bottom-up ways. It leverages the method architect's wisdom concerning the habit of the layout via structure specification utilizing an structure Description Language (ADL). The authors additionally handle basic demanding situations in sensible verification: loss of a golden reference version, and absence of a finished sensible assurance metric.Functional Verification of Programmable Embedded Architectures: A Top-Down technique is designed for college students, researchers, CAD device builders, designers, and bosses drawn to the improvement of instruments, ideas and methodologies for system-level layout, microprocessor validation, layout house exploration and sensible verification of embedded platforms.
