is a superset of Verilog-2005, with many new features and capabilities to aid design verification and design modeling. As of 2009, the
and Verilog language standards were merged into
2009 (IEEE Standard 1800-2009).
1) Function Import:- A function implemented in Foreign language can be used in
by importing it. A Foreign language function used in
is called Imported function.
provides an object-oriented programming model.
, OpenVera, e, and SystemC are the most commonly used HVLs.
attempts to combine HDL and HVL constructs into a single standard.
Assertions are useful for verifying properties of a design that manifest themselves after a specific condition or state is reached.
has its own assertion specification language, similar to Property Specification Language. The subset of
language constructs that serves assertion is commonly called
Assertion or SVA.
DPI (Direct Programming Interface) is an interface which can be used to interface
with foreign languages. These Foreign languages can be C, C++, SystemC as well as others. DPIs consist of two layers: A
Layer and a Foreign language layer. Both the layers are isolated from each other. Which programming language is actually used as the foreign language is transparent and irrelevant for the System-Verilog side of this interface. Neither the
compiler nor the foreign language compiler is required to analyze the source code in the other’s language. Different programming languages can be used and supported with the same intact
layer. For now, however,
defines a foreign language layer only for the C programming language.
In May 2006, EVE introduced a communication link to
assertion support, and a register transfer level compiler for mapping an ASIC or System-on-a-chip (SOC) design into ZeBu's arrays of FPGAs.
started with the donation of the Superlog language to Accellera in 2002. The bulk of the verification functionality is based on the OpenVera language donated by Synopsys. In 2005,
was adopted as IEEE Standard 1800-2005.
The feature-set of
can be divided into two distinct roles:
The remainder of this article discusses the features of
not present in Verilog-2005.
code can call Unix functions directly by importing them, with no need for a wrapper.
]] supports iteration over any vector or array type of any dimensionality using the codice_40 keyword.
Direct Programming Interface (DPI) allows direct inter language function calls between the
and Foreign language. The functions implemented in Foreign language can be called from
and such functions are called Import functions similarly functions implemented in
can be called from Foreign language (C/C++ or System C) such functions are called Export functions. DPIs allow transfer of data between two domains through function arguments and return.
Digital logic simulators often include a Tcl scripting interface for simulating Verilog, VHDL and
In 2015 an open-source RTL implementation of the OPL3 was written in
and adapted to an FPGA.
In the design verification role,
is widely used in the chip-design industry. The three largest EDA vendors (Cadence, Mentor, Synopsys) have incorporated
into their mixed-language HDL-simulators. Although no simulator can yet claim support for the entire
LRM, making testbench interoperability a challenge, efforts to promote cross-vendor compatibility are underway. In 2008, Cadence and Mentor released the Open Verification Methodology, an open-source class-library and usage-framework to facilitate the development of re-usable testbenches and canned verification-IP. Synopsys, which had been the first to publish a
class-library (VMM), subsequently responded by opening its proprietary VMM to the general public. Many third-party providers have announced or already released
Moorby joined Co-Design Automation in 1999, and in 2002 he joined Synopsys to work on
In addition to the static array used in design,
offers dynamic arrays, associative arrays and queues:
In the design synthesis role (transformation of a hardware-design description into a gate-netlist),
adoption has been slow. Many design teams use design flows which involve multiple tools from different vendors. Most design teams cannot migrate to
RTL-design until their entire front-end tool suite (linters, formal verification and automated test structure generators) support a common language subset.
