SemiWiki: An Ah-Ha Moment for Testbench Assembly

An Ah-Ha Moment for Testbench Assembly 

February 28, 2022 - Bernard Murphy

Sometimes we miss the forest for the trees, and I’m as guilty as anyone else. When we think testbenches, we rightly turn to UVM because that’s the agreed standard, and everyone has been investing their energy in learning UVM. UVM is fine, so why do we need to talk about anything different? That’s the forest and trees thing. We don’t need to change the way we define testbenches – the behavior and (largely) the top-level structure. But maybe there’s a better way to assemble that top level through a more structured assembly method than through hand-coding or ad-hoc scripting. Still built on UVM at leveraging the standardization benefits of IP-XACT for assembly around VIPs.

SemiWiki: Business Considerations in Traceability

Bernard Murphy (SemiWiki) gets an update from Arteris IP on why businesses may be increasing pushed to support traceability.

Business Considerations in Traceability 

January 26, 2022 - Bernard Murphy

Traceability as an emerging debate around hardware is gaining a lot of traction. As a reminder, traceability is the need to support a disciplined ability to trace from initial OEM requirements down through the value chain to implementation support and confirmed verification in software and hardware. Demand for traceability appears most commonly in safety-critical applications, from automotive and rail to mil-aero. In process industries such as petroleum, petrochemical and pharmaceutical, to power plants and machinery safety-related controls. And that’s just established applications. The more we push the IoT envelope, Industry 4.0, smart cities and homes, the more cannot-fail products we will inevitably create. Safety, reliability, regulations and even simply managing complex and varied requirements from customers have implications for traceability support.

How to deal with gaps that can impact reliability.


Despite standards such as ISO 26262 and IEC 61508, there are still disconnects and gaps in the supply chain and design-through-manufacturing flows. Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP, digs into what’s missing, why changes made in one area are not reflected in other areas and throughout the product lifecycle, and why various different phases of the flow don’t always match up with the initial requirements.
