4.2. Create a Design Specification and Test Plan
In addition, creating a test plan helps you to design for verification and ease of manufacture. For example, your test plan can include validation of interfaces incorporated in your design. To perform any built-in self-test functions to drive interfaces, you can use a UART interface with a Nios® II processor inside the FPGA device.
If more than one designer contributes to the design, consider a common design directory structure or source control system to make design integration easier. Consider whether you want to standardize on an interface protocol for each design block.
