Hi!I heard that there was the plan to include some code for turning all "check that" statements into coverage points in SN 5 but I can't find it in the docu.Has this been included yet ?Or can somebody provide the patch code for this feature ?RegardsChristian
Hello Christian,we have a package which contains this functionality. It was developed by an AE (ex-R&D) and relied to some degree on internal Specman functionality. Therefore the package only works with the Specman 4.3x versions. We are currently working on a general coverage solution which will also include this coverage. Before this will be available, we will provide a new version of the original package in Specman 6.1 (planned to be released in April 2007).Regards,-hannes
Hello All,please find attached an updated version of an old shareware which covers temporal checks ("expect") and instant checks ("check that"). This works for Specman 6.0 onwards. Please make sure to read the documentation, especially the limitations. The shareware is a temporary solution and we have plans to provide detailed assertion and checker coverage.Regards,-Specman Product Engineering
Hello All,apparently there were some issues with unpacking of the attached shareware.This is the same version, just re-submitted.Regards,-hannes
Hi Hannes,Have there been any updates to the assertion and checker coverage package? Can we expect such functionality to be part of a specman release, and if so, when?
Hello Iraklis,this is part of the 2008 plans, in conjunction with an overall focus on assertions in our plan driven verification flow. We are currently in the analysis/budgeting phase, so I currently can not comment on whether this will be in the first or second half of 2008.Regards,-hannes
Thank you for the update Hannes, I will be looking forward to those features once they are released.Best Regards,
Hello All,we found an issue last week with using this package with the AHB eVC.R&D kindly fixed the issue straight away, so the attached new version workswith the AHB UVC version 2.3.-hannes
Hello All,we found another issue last week and R&D kindly fixed the issue straight away.Please find attached a new version (this has been tested with 6.2). Also, in SPMN8.1 Specman will natively support collection of check/expect results (checked, finished and failed counters for each check/expect). Have a look in the release notes for more details (SPMN 8.1 is planned to be released end of May-08)Regards,-hannes
