Your reply works. In one case I have a family of about a dozen name compatible interfaces with slightly different properties (like bit widths/etc) that can be used interchangeably with a generic family of At its simplest, an interface is a named bundle of wires, similar to a struct, except that an interface is allowed as a module port, while a struct is not.

And I couldn't find out where exactly I was wrong. UVM brings clarity to the SystemVerilog language by providing a structure for how to use the features in SystemVerilog. What's Needed to Address the Problem? The compiler needs the type information in order to generate code around those references, and it doesn't know without very expensive analysis that the code is unreachable.
You will also likely want to get the array word size.

On the negative side, there does seem to be a danger that functionality that belongs in the class-based environment could "slip" into the interface instead, limiting reuse. More Help Here we exchange ideas on the Cadence Academic Network and other subjects of general interest. To be really useful, the classes that contained the virtual interface had to be parameterised too. I'm surprised I haven't hit the above bug (I hope you filed a bug report :)), but I've been using parameterized interfaces quite a bit and the working approach I use
This example includes modports, which are used to specify the direction of the signals in the interface. For example, the design model (i.e., DUT) can be mapped into a hardware accelerator and run much faster during verification, while the testbench continues to run in simulation on a workstation. Probably the most prevalent form of formally specifying design intent in the digital verification domain is through the use of properties, which can be implemented as either assertions or cover properties. Thank you for your replies.
The tasks are called inside the testRAM module: interface MSBus (input Clk); logic [7:0] Addr, Data; logic RWn; task MasterWrite (input logic [7:0] waddr, input logic [7:0] wdata); Addr = waddr; If you pass the array as an argument to $get_data() you can access the individual array words along with the other information needed to fill the words as you like. They can be used for port-less access: An interface can be instantiated directly as a static data object within a module. This was a pain and unmanageable.
The other issue is that since modules and interfaces do not support inheritance, creating a set of SV interfaces with additional "interface methods" (in the Java/C++ sense) could be a lot I was hoping there would be a Cliff or Stu paper, but could not find one.

This is most helpful when you have multiple slaves and you want coverage or checking on each slave DUT.There's loads more reasons, but those are a good start :)Originally posted in dlong Full Access203 posts May 13, 2008 at 2:09 am Hi Pieter, Thanks for sharing that. This lets all the drivers/monitors use any interface that is member name compatible and thus provides something kind of like polymorphism for interfaces.
