Compatibilities with Versions MVC/OVM Compatibility This version of MVC has been tested with OVM 2.0.3 and OVM 2.1 on Questa and OVM 2.0.2 on VCS. Questa MVC Library Release Notes, 2010.1a, April 2010 7 Changes and Enhancements Compatibilities with Versions For Questa users: The MVC Makefiles will pickup the default precompiled version of OVM from whichever version of Questa is in your path. For VCS users: Mentor Graphics supplies OVM 2.0.2 along with MVC version compatible with VCS. The MVC Makefiles will pickup this version of the OVM. MVC/QVL Compatibility MVC 2010.1a has been tested against QVL 2010.1a and is guaranteed to be consistent with it. Any other combination of MVC and QVL may not be consistent. If you have not installed QVL as described above, you may run into compile or run time errors. 8 Questa MVC Library Release Notes, 2010.1a, April 2010 Chapter 3 Corrected Problems Problems Fixed in This Release 2010.1a Release The following defects were fixed in the QVL 2010.1a release: • Bugz ID: 20940 PCIe MVC Protocol: PCIE now achieves Coverage Closure. • Bugz ID: 21132 AXI MVC Protocol: The bug is fixed in AXI for transactions missed by the monitor, which ends at the same time. • Bugz ID: 21180 USB 2.0 MVC Protocol: Link Power Management implementation is now provided. • Bugz ID: 21181 USB 2.0 MVC Protocol: Hub compliance tests are now implemented. The compliance tests follow “USB Command Verifier Compliance Test Specification Revision 1.2” document. • Bugz ID: 21182 USB 2.0 MVC Protocol: Device compliant tests are now implemented. The compliance tests follow “USB Command Verifier Compliance Test Specification Revision 1.2” document. • Bugz ID: 21183 USB 2.0 QVL Monitors: Link Power Management related protocol checking is now implemented. • Bugz ID: 21207 Ethernet MVC Protocol and QVL Monitors: All examples now work with or without the -novopt option. • Bugz ID: 21208 AMBA AHB MVC Protocol: Variables from configuration class are now being copied to interface config_* variables. Wrote do_copy method. Removed obsoleted variables and added absent variables. Questa MVC Library Release Notes, 2010.1a, April 2010 9 Corrected Problems Problems Fixed in This Release • Bugz ID: 21209 AMBA AHB MVC Protocol: AHB_RETRY removed from slave sequence and covergroups. • Bugz ID: 21211 AMBA AHB MVC Protocol: All g_* variables are now hidden. Updated files that were including them. The config_* signals are not being used directly; instead m_* should be used from the configuration class. • Bugz ID: 21212 AMBA AHB MVC Protocol: There is a configuration variable config_reset_source_rtl when set to 1 will not drive HRESETn. This is now fixed. • Bugz ID: 21213 USB 3.0 MVC Protocol: Receiver Detection is now working in USB 3.0 Pipe interface. • Bugz ID: 21214 AMBA AHB MVC Protocol: The iHMASTLOCK is no longer part of the interface port list. • Bugz ID: 21215 Ethernet and SPI4 MVC Protocol: Examples were added to Ethernet and SPI4 that shows the MVC module top-level for Verilog users. • bugz ID: 21216 AMBA AHB MVC Protocol: For the very first transfer of the default master doing a single transfer, the count for requesting bus request was getting decremented because the default master is always granted the bus at start-of-day. This is now fixed. • bugz ID: 21217 AMBA AHB MVC Protocol: There is a configuration variable called config_master_idle_on_error inside the interface (default value is set to 0). If this variable is set to 1, then the master will do an IDLE on the second cycle of receiving an ERROR response from the slave and start a new burst (with htrans == NONSEQ). This is now fixed. • bugz ID: 21218 OCP MVC Protocol: Tie-off values are now assigned to flow control signals. • Bugz ID: 21653 PCIe QVL Monitor: The PCIe QVL monitor’s performance is upgraded by changing the completion timeout logic so that the number of parallel threads are not getting generated for every non-posted transaction that requires the completion, which was degrading the performance. 10 Questa MVC Library Release Notes, 2010.1a, April 2010 Corrected Problems Problems Fixed Prior to This Release • Bugz ID:21691 APB MVC Protocol: Hard coded timeunit removed from SV interface and all top-level files to work with the Questa 6.6a release. • Bugz ID: 21692 Ethernet MVC Protocol: Suppress warnings -suppress 58010, -suppress 3009, and -suppress 51901 are removed from the Ethernet make files. • ClearQuest ID: dts0100671269 APB MVC Protocol: The reset generation by the TLM master now goes from 0 to 1. • ClearQuest ID: dts0100671274 APB MVC Protocol: When there is a read-write mismatch on any slave other than slave 0, APB3 scoreboard reports warning that the data could not be read. This issue in scoreboard is fixed. • ClearQuest ID: dts0100671275 APB MVC Protocol: For every read, the APB3 scoreboard reports a message that it failed to write into the scoreboard. This is changed so a warning is only displayed if a write happens to a non-existent address. • ClearQuest ID: dts0100671276 APB MVC Protocol: The QVL issues are fixed and added an enhancement in APB3 slave to work on access phase rather than setup phase. • ClearQuest ID: dts0100671279 APB MVC Protocol: The bug is fixed in the TLM slave of APB3 for writing data into memory after seeing only setup phase. Problems Fixed Prior to This Release 2010.1 Release The following defects were fixed in the QVL 2010.1 release: • Bugz ID:20529 Emulation (Veloce): Compliance works needed for QVL HDMI monitor. • Bugz ID:20529 Emulation (Veloce): Compliance works needed for QVL error reporting in emulation. • Bugz ID:20609 QVL in Questa 6.6: Individual corner case and statistics covergroups cannot be seen. • Bugz ID:20617 QVL monitors: Some QVL monitors did not compile without -mfcu option.

Customer shall not make Software available in any form to any person other than Customer’s employees and on-site contractors, excluding Mentor Graphics competitors, whose job performance requires access and who are under obligations of confidentiality. Customer shall take appropriate action to protect the confidentiality of Software and ensure that any person permitted access does not disclose or use it except as permitted by this Agreement. Log files, data files, rule files and script files generated by or for the Software (collectively “Files”) constitute and/or include confidential information of Mentor Graphics. Customer may share Files with third parties excluding Mentor Graphics competitors provided that the confidentiality of such Files is protected by written agreement at least as well as Customer protects other information of a similar nature or importance, but in any case with at least reasonable care. Standard Verification Rule Format (“SVRF”) and Tcl Verification Format (“TVF”) mean Mentor Graphics’ proprietary syntaxes for expressing process rules. Customer may use Files containing SVRF or TVF only with Mentor Graphics products. Under no circumstances shall Customer use Software or allow its use for the purpose of developing, enhancing or marketing any product that is in any way competitive with Software, or disclose to any third party the results of, or information pertaining to, any benchmark. Except as otherwise permitted for purposes of interoperability as specified by applicable and mandatory local law, Customer shall not reverse-assemble, reverse-compile, reverseengineer or in any way derive from Software any source code. 5.2. Customer may not sublicense, assign or otherwise transfer Software, this Agreement or the rights under it, whether by operation of law or otherwise (“attempted transfer”), without Mentor Graphics’ prior written consent and payment of Mentor Graphics’ then-current applicable transfer charges. Any attempted transfer without Mentor Graphics’ prior written consent shall be a material breach of this Agreement and may, at Mentor Graphics’ option, result in the immediate termination of the Agreement and licenses granted under this Agreement. The terms of this Agreement, including without limitation the licensing and assignment provisions, shall be binding upon Customer’s permitted successors in interest and assigns. 5.3. The provisions of this Section 5 shall survive the termination of this Agreement. 6. SUPPORT SERVICES.

IN THE CASE WHERE NO AMOUNT WAS PAID, MENTOR GRAPHICS AND ITS LICENSORS SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION 8 SHALL SURVIVE THE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT. 9. LIFE ENDANGERING APPLICATIONS. NEITHER MENTOR GRAPHICS NOR ITS LICENSORS SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF SOFTWARE IN ANY APPLICATION WHERE THE FAILURE OR INACCURACY OF THE SOFTWARE MIGHT RESULT IN DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY.
