Code coverage is an effective tool in the verification process, giving insights into testing completeness as well as identifying highly active or inactive areas of a design. Collecting code coverage in simulation on large designs can be a very time-consuming process. Code coverage can be collected at emulation speeds in the Palladium XP system.
The Accelerating Code Coverage Rapid Adoption Kit (RAK) defines which types of code coverage can be accelerated and how to enable and configure code coverage generation with Palladium XP Series. We have also included a short demo this time on accelerated code coverage, assertions, and functional coverage with covergroups.
Coverage scores can be viewed and analyzed with the Incisive Metrics Center (IMC) or Enterprise Manager tools. These tools also provide the ability to merge multiple UniCov databases together. This RAK has introduced the reader to the basics of compiling and generating code coverage with the Palladium XP system.
The complete RAK and associated overview presentation can be downloaded from our System-level verification and validation with Palladium XP page.
