Functional Simulation using UPF(Cont’d)

Last week we saw various commands within UPF which can be used for simulation. Today let us see how these constructs can be used to simulate certain behaviour. (a) Functional Correctness of all the signals, when voltage is varying. The question that needs to be asked here is, how to model the voltage in a […]

Functional Simulation using UPF

One of the main advantages of using UPF is that it ensures that the low power nature of a design is taken into account during functional verification. If we look at the various factors that need to be validated in the RTL functional simulation w.r.t Low Power Techniques, here are some of them:- (a) Functional […]

UPF Overview Part II

Wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year. Hope you all had a good holiday season. In the last post we saw how UPF answers our questions with respect to the power behaviour of a design. Today lets look at how the various commands in UPF are catergorised. (1) Power Domain Related create_power_domain […]
