RISC-V Processor Verification Tutorial at DVCon Europe - October 29-30, 2019

Imperas, Metrics and Google Present a Tutorial on Verification of RISC-V Processors

DVCon Europe

Imperas will co-present a tutorial at the 2019 Design and Verification Conference & Exhibition Europe (DVCon Europe), on the latest development on Verification and Compliance testing for RISC‑V Open ISA Processors. We hope to see you there!

Please email to meet with Imperas on virtual platforms for embedded software and systems development, debug and test, at DVCon Europe!

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

  • Organized by Kevin McDermott of Imperas Software, Ltd.
  • Speakers
    • Lee Moore                 Imperas Software, Ltd
    • Richard Ho                Google, Inc.

  • Where: Holiday Inn, Munich City Centre in Munich, Germany.
  • When:  October 29-30, 2019.

Abstract: For traditional single or closed sourced instruction set architectures (ISAs), compliance to the ISA specification is addressed during the internal development. With the new, open standard RISC-V ISA, the compliance situation is different. In addition to the multiple IP providers many will also exploit the capability with the open ISA to add custom instructions or other optimizations. Compliance testing therefore has become mission-critical for the RISC-V ecosystem to accommodate the wide adoption and support of compatible features while retaining the optimizations that the Open ISA permits.

This tutorial presentation introduces the methodologies being developed for compliance and verification testing of RISC-V, including a framework for development of additional tests, the development of the tests, reference models, and configurations for the RISC-V specification subsets.

The tutorial covers RISC-V Compliance testing and Verification with the Open Source RISC-V Instruction stream generator developed by Google, Imperas reference simulator and models, together with Metrics cloud-based testing infrastructure with scalable capacity flexibility.
