Graphical TestBench Generation

WWW.TESTBENCH.IN - Donna Mitchell
Test Benches can be generated from language independent timing diagrams, which are a natural way to design and display the parallel activity that occurs in within test benches.

Easing Today's Verification Language Bedlam

ECN - Donna Mitchell and Dan Notestein
Writing reusable bus-functional testbench models has always been a challenge. In the past few years, several verification languages have been introduced to address that challenge. For a company like SynaptiCAD Inc. (Blacksburg, VA), which makes the TestBencher Pro graphical code generator, a diverse customer base requires that our tool be able to generate the same model in all verification languages currently in use. We have a lot of experience pushing each language to its performance limits and comparing how the languages work.

Timing (Analysis) is Everything: A How-To Guide for Timing Analysis

Circuit Cellar - Philip Nowe
Philip Nowe, a WaveFormer Pro user, describes the importance of timing analysis and some of the techniques and tools available for doing timing analysis. What is timing analysis? Why is timing analysis important? How do you perform timing analysis? Click here to read the paper.

Coding Techniques for Bus Functional Models In Verilog, VHDL, and C++

ICU - Ben Rhodes and Dan Notestein
Techniques for creating Verilog, VHDL, and C++ hierarchical test benches that support re-use at different stages during the design of large-scale systems. Race avoidance, handling of multiple clock domains, lookup techniques for emulating hierarchical references to BFMs in VHDL, emulation of "class-like" data structures in Verilog and VHDL, and the use of a golden reference model to verify functionality while testing a system against constrained-random data are discussed.

Interfacing VHDL and Verilog Designs to C++ Models

ECN - Donna Mitchell
Techniques for automating the process interfacing VHDL and Verilog models to C++ high-level models. Using graphical code generation tools and public domain C++ libraries, engineers can setup a C environment and start simulating in just a few hours.

Testbench grafisch generieren

ElektronixPraxis - Donna Mitchell
German Editorial on how graphical test bench generation facilitates the collaboration of many engineers by removing the need to interpret source code. Includes both English and German translations.

SynaptiCAD generates OpenVera code

Electronic Engineering Times - Richard Goering
Providing some of the first third-party tool support for the OpenVera hardware verification language, SynaptiCAD Inc. has rolled out TestBencher Pro version 7.4, which generates OpenVera testbenches from timing diagrams.

Synapticad testbench generator adds SystemC support

   APRIL 06, 2001

Electronic Engineering Times - Richard Goering
Synapticad Inc. said it is offering the first tool able to generate SystemC testbenches from language-independent timing diagrams. The company's TestBencher Pro 7.2 graphical testbench-generation tool includes support for SystemC, an emerging system-level
