Verification Automation Solutions for Arm AMBA Coherent Interconnects

Arm TechCon 2017 took place at Santa Clara on 24-26th Oct, 2017. This year, Synopsys’ Arm® AMBA® protocol experts were on hand to demonstrate our verification automation solutions for Arm AMBA Coherent Interconnects. Synopsys Auto SoC Testbench generation solution enables easy and quick integration and configuration of hundreds of coherent and non-coherent AMBA ports and corresponding VIP instances. Our experts also introduced our AMBA AutoPerformance solution to generate AMBA(CHI/ACE/AXI) interconnect performance verification stimulus. The AutoPerformance solution, based on Arm traffic profile specification, enables user to define traffic profiles for measurement of performance metrics like throughput, latency etc., and the stimulus is driven by VIP for AMBA (CHI/ACE/AXI).

Jumping the Barrier of Verifying Arm AMBA ACE Protocol Barrier Transactions

The ordering of memory transactions in Arm® AMBA® protocol is a significant requirement, i.e. the sequence of memory updates/accesses must follow a defined ordering as per the specification. Ordering is important for synchronization events by a processor with respect to retiring load/store instructions. AMBA ACE barrier transactions are used for maintaining the memory ordering across a system. The learning curve to understand barrier transactions may become a barrier to verify your design thoroughly. This blog provides insight, making it easier to understand and verify the barrier transactions. The blog will cover different types of barrier transactions, usage, and domain boundaries.
