Assertion-based verification (ABV) enables the use of assertions for the efficient verification of low-level design properties. These assertions could be verified by simulation and formal verification methods. The VHDL 2008 standard includes Property Specification language (PSL) to express design properties for both simulation and static formal analysis. For mixed-mode simulations of VHDL designs with SystemVerilog testbenches, SystemVerilog Assertions (SVA) standard provides means to express both immediate and concurrent assertions as well as functional coverage constructs.
In this webinar, we will present various methods to implement assertions in VHDL designs as well as identify the strengths and limitations of each method. These methods include PSL (VHDL flavor), the usage of Open Verification Library (OVL) as well as concurrent assertions development using procedural code with assert statements.
