I want to use the scemi2.0 pipe to connect a ovm TB with a RTL DUT. In ovm side, I use the ovm_accel_pkg. I made an every simple example, in which a ovm_accel_input_pipe_proxy is used in the tb side and a scemi_input_pipe is used in the DUT side. But when I try to run the compiled snapshot, some mistakes show up like
Error: marg_deposit_handle: can't find top_m.dut_i.receive_pipe.fp_elements_count Error: marg_value_handle: can't find top_m.dut_i.receive_pipe.fp_read_pending Error: top_m.dut_i.receive_pipe.fp_buffer is not a Verilog memory Initialization ERROR !!! port top_m.dut_i.receive_pipe TBA_callback occurred but is not initialized, exiting simulation ...
The Makefile I used to compile is :

The errors shown above are related to the marg C interface. I guess I did not explicitly specify it. And the 'fp' of 'fp_elements_count' seems to stand for fast pipe. Again, I did not use fast pipe in my example. How can it complain about the fast pipe? I really don't understand.
Is there anyone can tell me where I made mistakes and how to solve it ? Thanks a lot ! I list my codes below.
Thanks and best regards,
My code is :
1 import ovm_pkg::*; 2 import ovm_accel_pkg::*; 3 `include "ovm_macros.svh" 4 class data_tran_t extends ovm_object; 5 reg[7:0] data; 6 `ovm_object_utils_begin(data_tran_t) 7 `ovm_field_int(data,OVM_ALL_ON) 8 `ovm_object_utils_end 9 10 function new(string name ="unamed_data_tran_t"); 11 super.new(name); 12 data=8'hff; // default value for data 13 endfunction 14 15 function void set(int unsigned value); 16 ovm_report_info(get_type_name(), $sformatf("data is set to %h",value)); 17 data=value; 18 endfunction: set 19 endclass 20 21 class tb extends ovm_component; 22 data_tran_t transaction; 23 ovm_accel_input_pipe_proxy#(data_tran_t) send_pipe; 24 `ovm_component_utils_begin(tb) 25 `ovm_field_object(transaction, OVM_ALL_ON) 26 `ovm_component_utils_end 27 28 function new(string name="unamed_tb", ovm_component parent=null); 29 super.new(name,parent); 30 transaction=new("transaction"); 31 endfunction: new 32 33 function void build(); 34 super.build(); 35 set_config_string("send_pipe","hdl_path","top_m.dut_i.receive_pipe"); 36 send_pipe=new("send_pipe", this); 37 send_pipe.set_pipe_name("top_m.dut_i.receive_pipe"); 38 39 endfunction:build 40 41 task run(); 42 transaction.set(20); 43 send_pipe.put(transaction); 44 endtask 45 46 endclass

Solved. Just a very stupid mistake that I should keep the files' version identical
16 /proj/asic/tools/cadence/uxe/11.1.1_latest/tools.lnx86/etc/tba/uatba_sv.sv \ 17 -incdir /proj/asic/tools/cadence/uxe/11.1.0_latest/share/uxe/etc/tba \

Hi Ashutosh, How are you ~? It's me, Xinwei at Ericsson in Stockholm. If there will be chance, you are very welcomed to visit Stockholm again ! I have found the error here. Actually, I wrongly used the directory path
/proj/asic/tools/cadence/uxe/11.1.1_latest/tools.lnx86/etc/tba/uatba_event.sv \ -incdir /proj/asic/tools/cadence/uxe/11.1.0_latest/share/uxe/etc/tba \ I should keep both of them to be 11.1.1_latest. Then it works. Thanks for your reply. Take care ~. Best regards, Xinwei
