Testbench Automation : How to Create a Complex Testbench in a Couple of Hours
In 2014, the semiconductor industry passed an important milestone. For the first time, the average engineering team had more verification engineers than designers. This means that any improvement in the efficiency of verifications teams has a significant impact on overall project costs and time to market.
For more than a decade, SystemC has been used by system architects and design engineers. Not only since the inclusion of Transaction Level Modeling (TLM) into the IEEE 1666-2011 SystemC standard, SystemC is the language of choice for virtual prototyping across the industry. In order to meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s electronic systems, advanced system-level design methodologies and the evolution of SystemC-related standards are required.
