Course Overview

Bluespec System Verilog

BSV (Bluespec SystemVerilog) is a language used in the design of electronic systems (ASICs, FPGAs and systems). BSV is used across the spectrum of applications - processors, memory subsystems, interconnects, DMAs and data movers, multimedia and communication I/O devices, multimedia and communication codecs and processors, signal processing accelerators, high-performance computing accelerators, etc. BSV is also used across markets - from low-power, portable consumer items to enterprise-class server-room systems. Being both a very high-level language as well as fully synthesizable to hardware, it is used in many design activities:

  • Executable Specifications (synthesizable)
  • Virtual Platforms (synthesizable)
  • Architectural Modeling (synthesizable)
  • Design and Implementation
  • Verification Environments (synthesizable)
