RISC-V International: Getting Started with RISC-V Verification

Design Verification (DV) test planning using a trusted SoC methodology for RISC-V processor verification including custom extension

RISC-V Processor Design Verification (DV)

Given that RISC-V is an open instruction set architecture (ISA), a RISC-V processor designer has many implementation and configuration options, plus the freedom of extending the ISA with custom instructions and extensions. While fundamentally a processor is a hardware design with the main objective of correctly executing software, it makes sense that software will play an important role in the overall verification process. This article addresses the latest developments around the use of the RISC-V processor compliance suite, verification testing and is a useful guide for using a reference model-based processor DV flow …
