Understanding SystemVerilog event regions and fundamental coding guidelines can help eliminate race conditions from SystemVerilog designs, testbenches and the interaction between the design and the enhanced SystemVerilog Hardware Verification Language (HVL).
New SystemVerilog event regions have been added to help eliminate race conditions that could occur between design modules and verification environments.
This paper details common Verilog verification strategies and how the new event regions facilitate construction of race-free testbenches using new SystemVerilog capabilities. An in-depth explanation of SystemVerilog event regions is included to help understand how race-reduction goals have been met. Important design & testbench coding guidelines are also included.
