Short workshop at DVCon U.S. 2021 – Virtual : 
RISC-V Based SoC Design, Verification and Validation in One Hour  Watch workshop video
Date: March 4, 2021
Time: 11:30 am – 12:30 pm PST

RISC-V brings a new wave to SoC creation. Creating a fully validated design is an arduous process that takes several teams to work together. Often the flow is a waterfall model where the specification is transformed in various stages of development. Often aspects such as Verification and Validation are an afterthought. In order to speed up the process and get better quality of results all these aspects need to be considered upfront.

Using a specification centric methodology, we will take the attendees into a whirlwind 1-hour flow of a RISC-V based SoC Design with semi-automatic verification and validation, all from a set of specifications.

Attendees will learn how to automate their development process such that there is zero redundancy and zero debug time. We will take a sample RISC-V design and create it in RTL, stitch it with CPU core and other IPs, verify it with UVM and validate it in a bare-metal RISC-V based C-UVM environment. All in the span of 1 hour!

Paper presentation:
ML-Based Verification and Regression Automation   Watch paper presentation
Date: March 3, 2021
Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm PST

With the continued increasing complexity of designs, the process of verification and regression takes up a vast amount of time in a continuous design and development cycle making it a labour-intensive work. Ideally self-checking tests are written in a UVM environment and a regression process ensures that there is a constant forward march towards code coverage and functional coverage.
We aim to show how Machine Learning (ML) techniques can be used to substantially reduce or eliminate manual laborious task of verification which includes validating waveforms for the written design checks and manual regression in the context of verifying complex hardware designs.
