SystemVerilog Training Program

Kasura offers a comprehensive three day training workshop on SystemVerilog. It is aimed at people ready to migrate from Verilog and willing to make their design more reusable and productive. Knowledge of Verilog is a prerequisite for this training. The focus of this training will be more towards verification although SystemVerilog design constructs are given due credit. The first day starts with a brief feature comparison and enhancements over Verilog 2001. Each major enhancement is dealt in detail with relevant examples showing pseudo code from Verilog 2001 and SystemVerilog 2009. A very powerful concept of Interfaces and Clocking blocks are deftly dealt during the training. The core intention of the training program is to help kick-start the verification possibilities that SystemVerilog can offer to verification teams.

Day 1 ends with an introduction to Classes. Here the audience starts getting familiarized with Object Oriented concepts. Each day there is hands-on working sessions in the form of labs where the candidates can apply the concepts introduced during the presentation.

Day 2 is focussed on constructs needed to build testbenches using SystemVerilog. Concepts like Constraint Random Verification (CRV) and Coverage Driven Verification (CDV) are introduced during day 2. At the end of labs on day 2, candidates should feel confident about independently building a simple testbench in SystemVerilog and can compare on their own the benefits to traditional Verilog testbenches. A brief introduction on latest methodologies like UVM, OVM and VMM is also given which would be an added highlight of the training program.

Day 3 marks the introduction of SV-DPI and SystemVerilog Assertions. SV-DPI is more useful for SV users communicating with C/C++/SystemC blocks.
