Tutorial: Portable Stimulus: What's Coming in 2.0 and What it Means For You

Portable StimulusPresented at DVCon U.S. 2021

The Portable Test and Stimulus Standard (PSS) from Accellera lets you create a single representation of stimulus and test scenarios that are usable by a variety of users across different platforms and different integration levels throughout a verification project. This tutorial will share some of the important new features coming in v2.0 that were added to enhance the usability, programmability and portability of PSS.

From additional programming features to enhance the expressability of abstract stimulus scenarios to new procedural constructs to improve the portability of register and memory modeling, members of the Portable Stimulus Working Group walk you through all aspects of creating a portable stimulus model and realizing its implementation on multiple platforms. Learn what you need to know to take advantage of the next leap forward in functional verification productivity.
