Getting Started with the SystemVerilog DPI

Webinar Overview

It is often useful to be able to cosimulate software written in another language together with a Hardware Description Language, but some of the existing fully featured Application Programming Interfaces for SystemVerilog are rather complicated for this purpose.

The SystemVerilog Direct Programming Interface (DPI) however is an easy-to-understand interface between C and SystemVerilog - and much more suited to cosimulation.

This webinar will explain how to get started with it.


Content Summary:

You can expect to learn:

  • How to call a simple C function from SystemVerilog
  • How to call SystemVerilog functions and tasks from C
  • How to pass various SystemVerilog data types between SystemVerilog and C
  • How to call a more complex C program from SystemVerilog

Practical examples are given using the Questa® Advanced Simulator from Mentor®.

Doulos Senior Member Technical Staff Matthew Taylor will present this training webinar, which will consist of a one-hour presentation with interactive Q&A available to attendees throughout.
