Announcing OSVVM™ 2016.11a
2016.11a is a minor release. The only file that changed is VendorCovApiPkg_Aldec.vhd. There was a bug in one of the attributes that has been fixed and verified.
VendorCovApiPKg simplifies the connection between OSVVM functional coverage a vendor’s internal functional coverage database. The operation of the API is simple. Within OSVVM, all calls to create a functional coverage model (AddBins and AddCross) and record coverage (ICover) are forwarded to a simulator via VendorCovApiPkg. The simulator can use these calls to create an internal version of the functional coverage model and record the coverage.
VendorCovApiPkg_Aldec.vhd works with Riviera-PRO 2016.10. Aldec anticipates that the next release of Active-HDL will support VendorCovApiPkg_Aldec.vhd.
The heart of VendorCovApiPkg is covered in two pages of VendorCovApiPkg_user_guide.pdf.
