Imperas Software in the UK has extended the RVVI (RISC-V Verification Interface) with virtual peripherals to support asynchronous events and system level interrupts. RVVI is an open specification with a common methodology for the key components of the testbench to connect the RISC-V processor RTL instruction trace and reference models to fully support the lock-step-compare co-simulation.

The RVVI…

It may come as a surprise that over 10 billion RISC-V processor cores have shipped. After all, it took ARM 17 years to reach that milestone in 2008, and RISC-V could be considered to be in its infancy with a consensus that the eco-system still needs to evolve, particularly around security. These two factors result from the open standard approach to an inherently custom technology. The instruction set can be easily extended to accelerate key instructions, reducing die area and…

Defining what a processor is, and what it is supposed to do, is not always as easy as it sounds. In fact, companies are struggling with the implications of hundreds of heterogenous processing elements crammed into a single chip or package. Companies have extensive verification methodologies, but not for validation. Verification is a…
