SVUnit v3.1 Released

Download the Latest Version of SVUnit from GitHubI just posted version 3.1 of SVUnit to GitHub. If you’ve been waiting patiently for me to get rid of the makefiles, the wait is over. From here on, we’ve got a simple command line script to run SVUnit unit tests with any of IUS, Questa, Modelsim, Riviera PRO and VCS.

The best place to start with version 3.1 is the README.txt in the release package. Pay attention to step 5 because that’s where everything changes (for the simpler and better). All the code in the release package, including the examples, has been updated to match the new scripts so there shouldn’t be anything misleading in there. Also exciting is that all the documentation has been removed (it was incredibly out-of-date and misleading to say the least). I still need to update the SVUnit on demand videos which I’ll do as soon as I can.

Lastly, here’s the usage for the new run script that I’ve been touching up over the past several weeks…

FYI… the next updates I’m considering are support for UVM1.2 and parameterized unit test classes as well as a few other things people have been asking for.

Thanks to those that gave feedback and helped get us to version 3.1!

  1. First stumbling block:

    Can’t locate object method “new” via package “IO::File” (perhaps you forgot to load “IO::File”?) at /slowfs/us01dwt2p205/usb3/mmyers/dev31/DWC_usb31/unit_sim/lsp/svunit-code/bin/runSVUnit line 92.
