Community-Based Verication of Multiple MIPS DUTs gSystem Verilog/UVM) gOngoing) Oct 2019-Nov 19

UVM based verication of instructional level testing on multiple MIPS processors. Pseudo random testing on multiple DUTS Sc voting on the outcome to reduce test development time.

Developing a verication structure containing multiple UVM environments, agents and scoreboards.

Using directed test cases and constrained randomization to achieve code and functional coverage.

0 Learning the importance of verication Plan and UVM based testing for industry level application.

Functional verication of 12C controller using APB bus protocol : (System Verilog /UVM) Oct 2019-Nov 19

o UVM based verication of 12C controller model placed on an APB bus associated with IMX processor.

0 Several DUTS were monitored and veried using UVM based verication environment. 0 Using the APB bus protocols we load the 12C controller by creating the sequence, sequencer and
