1.1. Advantages of Using BFMs and Monitors

Using these BFMs and monitors has the following advantages:
  • It accelerates the verification process by providing key components of the verification testbench.
  • It provides Avalon BFM components that implement the standard Avalon-MM and Avalon-ST protocols, serving as a reference for those protocols.
  • For SystemVerilog users, the verification suite provides a platform that you can use to implement constraint-driven randomized tests. For example, you can implement the following modules for random testing:
    • Traffic scenario drivers
    • Scoreboard and coverage facilities
    • Assertion checkers
